Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) members have sent back 250 Rohingyas, who were trying to enter Bangladesh on 19 boats to flee persecution in Myanmar’s Rakhine state.
BGB personnel prevented the trespassing at two different points of Naf River early Saturday.
Teknaf 2 BGB Commander Lt Col Abujar Al Zahid said: “BGB patrol boats sent back those Rohingyas when they were trying to enter Bangladesh territory.”
“We have tightened the vigilance at different points along the border to stop Rohingya intrusion,” the BGB commander added.
