Locals speculate some of them are infected with Covid-19 and are seeking medical attention

Around 150 Rohingyas may try to enter Bangladesh through the border at Anjumanpara area in Palongkhali union, said sources from Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) and upazila administration in Ukhiya upazila of Cox’s Bazar.

“A government agency, on Thursday night informed us that some Rohingyas may try to trespass into the country. A number of mosques made announcements to alert locals of the matter,” said Sultan Ahmed, member of Palongkhali Union Parishad in Ukhiya.

“I along with some people positioned ourselves at the Paishakhali area adjacent to the border early Friday, and we have reasons to believe a Rohingya terrorist group is trying to smuggle some people into Bangladesh,” added Sultan.

Gafur Uddin Choudhury, Palongkhali UP chairman said the situation was discussed with BGB after they learned that around 150 Rohingyas are trying to trespass to Bangladesh through the border at Modir Khal area in Anjumanpara. “BGB are vigilant so that no more Rohingyas may enter the country. We have also heard that some Rohingyas are infected with the coronavirus (Covid-19). Maybe they are looking to get some treatment here.”

Cox's Bazar BGB battalion 34 Commanding Officer Lt Col Ali Haider Azad Ahmed said reinforcements were sent to Anjumanpara and none would be allowed illegal entry inside the country.
