10 Bangladeshis jailed in India for intrusion back home.

Jashore, May 18 -Ten Bangladeshis returned home from India through Benapole checkpost in Jashore on Thursday night after serving sentences in jail for two years, authorities said.

The returnees are Arif Mollah, 23, Korban Ali, 25, Pannu Mollah, 28, Solaiman, 20, Sharif, 24, Saiful Islam, 19, Yeasin Sheikh, 25, Nazibul Islam, 20, Sumanto Mondal, 18, and Sohel Hawlader, 21.

Ahsan Habib, officer-in-charge of Benapole Immigration Police Station, said they handed over the 10 Bangladeshis to Benapole port police station after completing formal procedures.

They (Bangladeshis) returned home with a special travel permit offered by the Indian government after ending their jail periods, he said.

Rokey Parveen, a field officer of local NGO ‘Justice and Care’, said the Bangladeshis went to India with a hope of managing jobs in Chennai but local law enforcers arrested them and sent them to jail for intrusion.

After serving the jail term, they were released while an Indian NGO ‘Tirgo’ took them under their custody and finally sent them back to Bangladesh through the checkpost, she added. - UNB
