19 return after serving in Indian jail

Eighteen Bangladeshi women and a child returned home through Benapole check post yesterday after serving three years in an Indian jail.

Indian police handed them over to Benapole check post immigration police.

Tarikul Islam, office- in-charge of Benapole Police Immigration, said they illegally went to India in search of good jobs over three years ago without valid documents.

Later, Indian police arrested them from Mumbai. A court sentenced them to three years' imprisonment each for illegally crossing the border.

The Indian government returned them following exchange of letters between the home ministries of both countries.

Benapole Port Police said they handed over the returnees to their respective families.
