Five Rohingyas who entered Tripura from Bangladesh with the help of Indian brokers in lieu of money using fake documents have been arrested by the Tripura Police.

The arrested Rohingyas said that they had paid Rs 2,500 per person to the brokers (2 Indians and 2 Bangladeshis) for helping them to cross the border illegally through Comilla (in Bangladesh).

Investigations revealed that the Rohingyas were in possession of fake Indian Aadhar cards which were given to them by the brokers.

The Rohingyas were arrested from the Dharmanagar railway station in North Tripura district on Friday.
Those arrested include three men and two women identified as-Aman Ullah, Mohammed Shah, Mohammed Ahesas, Rozina Begum and Nur Kalima.

As per inputs, the Rohingyas were planning to leave for Jammu. They were arrested when they were waiting to board a train. During interrogation, one of them informed that they had stayed at the Kutupalang refugee camp in Cox’s Bazaar of Bangladesh before crossing over to India on May 17.

Another lady who was with the Rohingyas fled with one of the broker while on their way to Dharmanagar from Agartala.

Earlier, on April 11 the GRP and BSF in a joint operation apprehended 5 Rohingyas including a 2-year old girl child during a checking at the Teliamura railway station in Khowai district of Tripura.

The Rohingyas were arrested on suspicion that they might be Bangladeshis who have illegally entered India. But during interrogation the individuals confessed that they were Rohingyas.

On March 20, 3 Rohingyas were apprehended by the Border Security Force (BSF) from the Dharmanagar railway station. The 3 Rohingyas had entered India illegally through the porous international border.

In February this year as many as 16 people including 12 foreign nationals were detained by the Railway Police Force (RPF) at Agartala railway station, for illegally entering India. Among these included 10 Rohingyas and 2 Bangladeshis.
