Five Bangladeshi teenage girls returned home through Benapole check post on Friday night after serving three years jail in an Indian jail.
Indian police handed the girls, hail from Barisal and Pirojpur districts, over to Benapole immigration police on completion of their jail term, UNB reports.
Omar Sharif, officer-in-charge of Benapole check post police immigration, said the five girls illegally entered India three and half years back without valid documents through Jessore border in search of good job. Later, Indian police arrested them from Bangalore town.
An Indian court sentenced them to three years imprisonment each for illegally crossing the border and sent them to Bangalore Central Jail.
Apurbo Hasan, officer-in-charge of Benapole Port Police Station, said they handed the returnees over to Rights Jessore, a human rights organisation. They later handed them over to their respective families.
