Rohingya trio deported to Myanmar

Three Rohingya, including a woman, were deported to Myanmar via Moreh in Manipur on Thursday. The three had been caught in 2013 for illegally entering Assam.

"We coordinated with Manipur police and Myanmar authorities for the deportation of the Rohingya people," Sader Ali, Deputy Superintendent of Police in Assam's Sonitpur district, said on Friday.

The three were lodged at a detention camp for foreigners in Sonitpur district headquarters Tezpur. They belonged to the family of five other Rohingya who had been deported to Myanmar on January 3. Mr Ali was in charge of the deportation process that involved Moreh's sub-divisional police officer Binoy Chongtham.

The deported trio was identified as Emam Hussain, 55, Mohammed Saresh, 20, and Rafiqa Begin, 18. Police said they were from a village under Bathidung police station in Myanmar.
