14 Bangladeshis return serving jail term in India


Fourteen Bangladeshi nationals, including five children, returned home through Benapole check-post after languishing in an Indian jail for one and a half years.

 

Tarikul Islam, officer-in-charge of Benapole Immigration police, said Petrapole Immigration police handed them over to their Bangladeshi counterparts around 9 pm on Thursday night.

 

The victims had entered India two years back without valid documents through a Jessore border point in search of jobs.

 

Indian police arrested them from Kolkata, West Bengal.

 

Later, the arrestees were produced before a local court when the court sentenced them to one and a half years' imprisonment.

 

The process to bring them back started following a joint intervention by the home ministries of the two countries.

 

Motiar Rahman, a sub-inspector at Benapole Port Police Station, said police handed the returnees over to their respective families, reports UNB.
