Bangladesh PM inquires about Rohingya infiltration

Dhaka (Narinjara): The Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in a cabinet meeting at the Secretariat on Monday made inquiries from the Home Ministry about the contentious issue of Rohingya infiltration into Bangladesh, said an official report.

The Bangladesh premier made inquiries while she was chairing the cabinet meeting yesterday.

Home Ministry officials told her at the meeting that the infiltration is creating law and order problems in some districts bordering Burma.

The report said that Hasina wanted details about infiltration by Rohingyas into Bangladesh.

The Bangladesh government has directed the BDR, law enforcement agencies and district administration to initiate tough action to stop infiltration, the report said quoting an authorized official from the Home Ministry.

The Home Ministry also said it has directed the administration to take steps to push back infiltrators.

Many Burmese Muslims, widely known as Rohingya, from Arakan state, have been intruding into Bangladesh in recent months and many were reportedly pushed back to Burma.

After the information spread through the media, the Bangladesh Prime Minister made inquiries about the issue from concerned authorities of the Home Ministry.

At the cabinet meeting, the PM also directed the concerned ministries to take immediate steps to link Bangladesh with the Asian Highway Network (AHN) via Burma.
