 Border Guard Bangladesh received 27 Bangladeshis after they served their three-year term for illegally entering India, an official said.

The Border Security Force handed over the Bangladeshis late Friday night to the Border Guard Bangladesh at the Benapole town in Jessore district of Bangladesh, reported Saturday.

Border Guard Bangladesh Commander at Benapole checkpost's, Md Abdullah said the Bangladeshis have returned on special passes provided by India.

Abdullah said they were arrested from Kerala, where they had been looking for jobs. 

Human traffickers had sent them to India, luring them with fake offers of well-paid jobs, said the official.

Kaiyum Ali Sarder, officer-in-charge at Benapole, said police had received custody of the Bangladeshis and they would be released Saturday after following due process of law.

Of the 27 people, 13 are from Bagerhat, 12 from Kushtia district, one each from Rajshahi city and Meherpur district.

Every year, a number of Bangladeshis venture into neighbouring India, to get good jobs but many of them end up in jails.
