India hands over 7 illegal Rohingya refugees to Myanmar

The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to stop the deportation of seven Rohingya Muslims from Assam to Myanmar. A three-judge Bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said the seven had been found to be illegal immigrants by the court earlier and Myanmar was also ready to accept them. The seven immigrants, inhabitants of Myanmar’s Rakhine State, had been lodged in an Assam jail since 2012.

They were handed over to Myanmar authorities on Thursday. This will be the first such official deportation from India to Myanmar. In its affidavit, the Home Ministry had underlined that the seven were willing to go back to Myanmar. Assam has about 32 Rohingya refugees in detention camps in Assam, about 15 of them including seven minors are in Tezpur.
