Nine Bangladeshi Hindus who entered India illegally, were arrested from a village near the international border in West Tripura district, the police said on Wednesday.

The nine people, aged between two and 75 years, were suspiciously loitering at Matai village under the Sidhai Police Station on Monday night. The local people captured them and handed them over to the police.

“The group consists of three men, three women and as many children. They did not possess any valid document. A local court remanded them to police custody for five days,” said Bijoy Sen, officer-in-charge of the Sidhai Police Station.

The Bangladeshis had sneaked into the Indian territory from Chittagong and Sylhet districts.

Local MLA and Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT) leader Brishaketu Debbarma said that he had met these Bangladeshi nationals who informed him that they want to live in India permanently. The tribal-based IPFT is a coalition partner of the ruling BJP in the State.

“We are not against any community, caste or religion. But we are opposed to the Constitution (Amendment) Act. Bangladeshis should not get the official right to stay in our country,” Debbarma told reporters.

Bangladeshis, in connivance with local agents, sneak into Tripura and manage to get official documents to prove their Indian citizenship, he alleged.

The BSF had on Sunday detained two Bangladeshi Muslims from Kailashahar in Unakoti district.
