Agartala, September 23, 2023: The 165 Battalion of the Border Security Force (BSF) apprehended three Rohingya minors for illegal entry into Indian territory. The individuals were subsequently handed over to the local authorities at the Tripura’s Madhupur police station in Sepahijala district on Saturday.
According to official sources within the BSF, the apprehension took place in the Konaban, Harihar Dola area, where the minors were intercepted during an attempted infiltration. Among the three detained, one was identified as a 14-year-old, while the other two were only 12 years old. The handover to the police at Madhupur police station transpired on a Saturday afternoon.
