Tripura: 5 Bangladeshi Nationals Repatriated

Guwahati: The Tripura government returned five Bangladeshi nationals to Bangladesh at the Akhaura integrated check post in Agartala on Friday.

The five people entered India in a mentally ill state after crossing the international boundary unintentionally four to seven years ago.

They were detained by the BSF and handed over to the police, who discovered that they were mentally ill during the investigation.

The court had ordered that they be taken to the Modern Psychiatric Hospital in Agartala, where they were all being treated.

The five Bangladeshi nationals have been identified as Santosh Deb of Chittagong, Bijoy Chunu of Narayanganj, Moina Begum of Manikganj, Rogina Begum of Patuakhali and Kulsum Begum of Comilla.

Bangladesh Assistant High Commission in Agartala, Arif Mohammad had enabled their return to Bangladesh, and BSF personnel turned them over to their Bangladeshi counterparts, who in turn handed them over to the returnees’ family on Bangladesh soil.

Mohammad said “Their whereabouts were asked as they got mentally sound following therapy and were reunited with their relatives.”
