103 Rohingyas held in Chittagong

Police arrested 103 Rohingya refugees from different parts of Patiya upazila of Chittagong, from Sunday night till Monday morning.


Acting on information that some Rohingyas were staying in different parts of the upazila, a team of police conducted an overnight drive and arrested 103 Rohingyas, said Sheikh Neyamat Ullah, reports UNB.


All of them will be sent back to Kutupalong Rohingya camp in Ukhiya upazila of Cox’s Bazar, said the OC.


Several lakh Rohingya people have entered Bangladesh in the last several weeks following fresh attacks on Rohingya Muslims by the Myanmar army in Rakhine State.


At least 27 check-posts have been set up in Chittagong and Cox’s Bazar to prevent spread of  Rohingyas to other places.
