Agartala: At a time when 31 Rohingya immigrants have been detained by the BSF in Tripura, four days after being stranded at ‘no man’s land’ along the Indo-Bangla border, 30 more Rohingyas, including nine women and 12 children, were reportedly apprehended along the Tripura-Assam border on Monday night.

The Rohingya Muslims were reportedly arrested from a Guwahati-bound bus at Churaibari along the inter-state border, after they boarded the bus from Agartala.

Meanwhile, the meeting between the Border Security Force (BSF) and Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB), which was supposed to take place on Monday over the fate of the 31 Rohingya nationals, did not take place.

The BSF is presently providing the immigrants with food, clothes and other necessities, as it awaits instructions from the BSF headquarters in Delhi by Tuesday about their next course of action.
