Despite the Supreme Court of India banning the government from deporting Rohingya refugees from the country, Indian border force has sent 18 of them into Bangladesh through the Satkhira border.

The refugees turned up in Kalaroa Chandanpur in the district on Friday morning, said local Union Parishad Member Md Nazrul Islam.

“At 7 in the morning, these people suddenly entered my home, which is about 100 yards from the border,” Nazrul told the Dhaka Tribune over phone.

There were three men, five women and 10 children in the group.

The Rohingya had told him people from the Ganarajpur Border Security Force camp in Basirhaat, North 24 Parganas had forced them to come here.

Nayek Subadar Omar Faruk of the 38 BGB Hijaldi border post, who went to Nazrul’s house, said the refugees had told him they had been living in India for over three years.

On Friday, the Indian Supreme Court deferred the deportation of Rohingya Muslim refugees from India till its next hearing on November 21 and said there is not an “iota of doubt” that a humanitarian approach should be taken on the matter.

Over the last three weeks the BSF has expelled 57 Rohingya people four times through various border points of Satkhira, including this group.

Chandanpur UP Chairman Monirul Islam confirmed the incident but could not say what would be done with the refugees.

The BGB official could not say either.

“I have sheltered them for now at my home and provided them with food for humanitarian reasons,” Nazrul Islam said.

The sheltered refugees are Rupiya Khatun, Rokeya Khatun, Abu Taher, Abdur Rahim, Rehana Khatun, Alimuddin, Shahrukh, Azizur, Jiarul, Jubaid, Sumaiya, Gulshan Aram Enayetur, Mahbub, Jubair, Sufia, Rashida and Salma Khatun.
