GUWAHATI:

Six Bangladeshi nationals on Sunday were deported from the international border check-post at Sutarkandi in Assam’s Karimganj district.

Authorities in the state handed them over to the Bangladesh authorities after completing all the legal procedures and consultations with officials from the neighbouring country.

“The Government Railway Police arrested the Bangladeshi Nationals from different parts of the state, for entering the country without valid documents”, a Border Security Force officer based in Karimganj said on Tuesday.

Sources said they were lodged at the Goalpara and Kokrajhar detention camps in the state for the past two years.

Earlier on November 2, the state government deported 42 Bangladeshi nationals to their country from the international border check-point at Sutarkandi.

They were detained under the Foreigners Act about three years back after entering Assam with no valid documents.

The Assam government has deported 48 Bangladeshi nationals to their country in this month itself.
