Process on to send them back to their respective camps in Cox’s Bazar

A mobile court in Kurigram detained nine Rohingya refugees on Wednesday night for flouting the Covid-19 lockdown norms.

The refugees have been identified as Faia Salam, 27, Ismail Hossain, 18, Sabika Khatun, 50, Nasim, 15, Riaz, 10, Asmira Khatun, 18, Tasminara Khatun, 7, Rumajan Khatun, 5, and Ismail Hossain, 3.

All of them are the residents of different Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar, police said.

Alamgir Hossain, officer-in-charge of Bhurungamari police station, said during regular patrolling, the mobile court of the local administration intercepted a battery-run three-wheeler carrying 12 people amid the ongoing countrywide lockdown.

While two occupants of the vehicle managed to escape in the dark, the nine others were detained. The remaining person, a Bangladeshi national, was the driver of the vehicle. He was let off with a warning.

 The nine were subsequently handed over to the police after they revealed their identities and claimed that they had plans to sneak into neighbouring India.

"We have initiated the process to send the Rohingyas back to their respective camps," the OC said.
