Guwahati/IBNS: Two days after 15 Rohingya illegal immigrants were arrested by GRP personnel in Assam’s Karimganj district, nine more Rohingyas with fake UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) ID cards were held by police on Sunday in Guwahati.

The six women, three men and a child - were arrested during a check on the Agartala-Deogarh Express, according to media reports.

An Indian national, identified as Aman Ullah of Jammu's Narwal, was accompanying them.

On Friday, 15 Rohingya - six children, six men and three women - were arrested by GRP personnel in Badarpur in Karimganj district as they tried to board the Silchar-Agartala train, the reports added.

They were carrying fake UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) ID cards, said the GRP.

The GRP said that they would be carried as illegal immigrants as none of them were carrying valid papers.
