This group comprised 302 BGP personnel, four of their family members, two military members, 18 immigration officials, and four civilians, highlighting the diverse backgrounds of those affected by the unrest in Myanmar.

The transfer ceremony was attended by notable figures including BGB Director General Major General Mohammad Ashraful Islam Siddiqui and the Ambassador of Myanmar to Bangladesh, U Aung Kyaw Moe.
