Sources said the foreigners had entered India without valid documents and had worked in a factory in Uttar Pradesh.

However, police arrested them after finding out that they had entered the country without valid documents.

Police later produced them before a court which sentenced them to four months’ imprisonment at Silchar Central Jail. After their imprisonment ended in September, they stayed at a detention camp on the jail premises.

The Central Government informed the Myanmar government of the matter, following which it agreed to take them back.
