So, they were returning to Guwahati in search of jobs.
He also informed that one Raju of West Bengal had brought them.
Police found UN cards from some of them and are checking if those are real or fake.
Meanwhile, 31 Rohingyas including 16 children and nine women are spending chill winter nights in the open sky for the fourth consecutive day at Rayermura under Amtali Police Station on the outskirts of Tripura capital, Agartala.
They are stranded between the Indian barbed wire border fencing and the border pillars demarcating India and Bangladesh as border guards of both the nations are alleging each other for pushing them to the other nation’s territory.
While the Border Security Force (BSF) alleged that the Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB) tried to push them to the Indian territory, the BGB made counter allegation against the Indian border guarding force.
