All of them were registered at Kutupalong Rohingya camp in Cox’s Bazar.

Sub-Inspector Mizanur Rahman said they boarded a Satkhira-bound bus of Eagle Paribahan from Dhaka. They were forced to get down from the bus around 7:30am as no one could understand their language.

Later, police detained them after interrogation.

Bangladesh is currently hosting more than 1.1 million Rohingyas. Most of them fled here from their homeland in Myanmar’s Rakhine State after the military launched a brutal offensive against them in late August 2017.
