Brahmanbaria, Jan 22 (UNB) – Indian Border Security Force (BSF) took back 31 Rohingyas from the no man’s land on Tuesday, said Lt Col Golam Kabir, commander of 25 Border Guard Bangladesh Battalion.
The Rohingyas, including 17 children and six women, came to the place near Kajiatoli area in Kasba Upazila on Friday evening to enter Bangladesh.
Gopinathpur Union Parishad Chairman SM Mannan claimed the BSF was trying to force the refugees into Bangladesh.
The BGB intensified vigil to prevent them from entering the country. But severe cold and hunger took their toll on the children.
Several flag meetings between BGB and BSF yielded no results. The BSF set up tents for the Rohingyas on Monday and supplied them food before taking them back in phases in the morning.
