Tripura Police detained four Rohingya refugees, including women, from Dharmanagar in North Tripura on Friday when they were on their way to board a train to Hyderabad.

Police said the refugees claimed that they have entered the Indian territory illegally on Thursday night to go to South India in search of work.

According to police, the detainees were identified as Mohammad Arab (22), Samia (20), Ismat Ara (17), and Isha (15), the residents of a Rohingya camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh.

The Rohingyas entered Indian territory with the assistance of a Bangladeshi tout named Abdullah by paying 30,000 Bangladeshi currency, stated police.

During preliminary interrogation, the detainees revealed that after selling rice and pulses they received in the camp, they managed 30,000 Bangladeshi currency and gave it to the broker for crossing the international border.

They were forwarded to court seeking remand under the Indian Passport Act.
