Guwahati, Mar 19: The Railway Protection Force (RPF) of Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) apprehended three Rohingyas from Agartala Railway Station on Sunday.

The chief public relations officer, NFR, in a statement issued here on Tuesday said that a joint team of RPF and Government Railway Police (GRP), during the course of routine checking, detected suspicious activity of a group of people at Agartala Railway Station.

“On interrogation they could not produce any valid documents. Later, they revealed that they entered India illegally and were planning to escape from Agartala by train number 13174 (Kanchenjunga Express). Later, all the Rohingyas were apprehended and handed over to the officer in-charge/GRP Agartala for further legal action,” the CPRO said.

Notably, during the financial year 2023-24, as many as 340 illegal migrants (Rohingyas/Bangladeshis) have been apprehended at different stations under NFR by RPF.

“RPF staff deployed at stations and trains are always vigilant and alert against illegal infiltration from border areas. RPF conducts routine checks at railways stations and trains to prevent such infiltration,” the official said.
