SONAMURA: Three persons have been arrested from a village near the Indo-Bangla border in connection with "trafficking" of Rohingyas, a police official said today.

Acting on a tip-off, sleuths of Assam and Tripura Police and BSF personnel raided the Nabadwip Chandra Nagar village last night and arrested Suman Chowdhury (35), Faruk Chowdhury (32) and Sahajahan Choudhury (38), SP, Sipahijala district, Sudipta Das told reporters.

"On the basis of inputs of the Rohingya refugees, the Assam Police with help from Tripura Police and BSF arrested the three persons involved in trafficking," Das said.

He said six Rohingyas were arrested on August 19 at Karimganj in Assam, and during interrogation, they confessed to have migrated from Myanmar's Rakhine state, and were staying in Bangladesh as refugees.

"They entered India with the help of a trafficking racket by using the sensitive corridor at Nabawip Chandra Nagar," Das said.
