7 Rohingya Muslims arrested in Tripura

Agartala, Feb 3 (PTI) Seven Rohingya Muslims were Sunday arrested from an Assam-bound train here, police said.
They were detained at Dharmanagar Railway Station in North Tripura district and later handed over to Tripura Police.
Assistant Sub Inspector of Railway Police Force (RPF), Laxman Debbarma, who is in charge of a RPF contingent at Dharmanagar railway station, said the seven Rohingya Muslims were detained after security personnel found them behaving in a suspicious manner in the station premises.
The arrested include six girls and a boy, all in their teens.
“All the detainees were having valid general category tickets from Agartala Railway Station till Badarpur Junction in Assam. On suspicion, we made a preliminary interrogation and found all of them to be Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar.
Later, they were handed over to local police at Dharmanagar,” Debbarma said.
North Tripura district superintendent of police Bhanupada Chakraborty said the detainees were being interrogated.
Last month, 67 Rohingyas were arrested in Tripura. Of them, 31 were holed up at the Indo-Bangla international border behind the barbed wire fencing for four days before the Border Security Force arrested them and handed them over to Tripura Police.
