Seven Rohingyas, released from Silchar detention camp on Wednesday, have been formally deported to Myanmar via Moreh in Manipur Thursday afternoon. Moreh is border commercial town located about 110 km south of Imphal.
They were handed over to Myanmar authorities at the Myanmar Immigration Office located near gate number 2 of Indo-Myanmar border around 1.30 pm.
Seven of them entered India illegally in 2012 and settled near Nagatilla area on the outskirts of Silchar, but, were picked up that year itself and lodged in Silchar Central Jail to serve their punishment for such an act.
On Wednesday morning under heavy security cover these seven Rohingyas were made to board a Network Travels bus (AS 24 C – 2829) from outside Silchar Central Jail for their onward journey to make them cross over to Myanmar via Jiribam, bordering Assam and Manipur.
These Myanmarese nationals are Mohammad Sabir Ahmed, Mohammad Inus, Mohammad Jamal, Mohammad Salam, Mohammad Mukbul Khan, Mohammad Rohimuddin, and Mohammad Jamal Hussain.
All the seven are residents of village Keito (Badarpara) under Cheptak Police Station of Faida district of Myanmar, which each one of them, have testified and cross checked too, by Myanmarese officials, before agreeing for their deportation, informed an official on condition of anonymity.
Though their punitive actions have been served a long time back, having been lodged in Silchar Central Jail, all of these pleaded on their own to return back to Myanmar, for which, finally after talks between these two nations resulted in seven of them being deported back to their motherland.
