They secretly started living at their daughter’s at Alikhali Camp after reaching there by road on Tuesday, May 24.
Acting on a tip-off, the camp-in-charge was told of this. Looking into this, he came to know that the tip-off was true and then members of the APBn arrested the two Rohingyas, who had escaped from India.
The arrested Rohingyas had lived in a refugee camp in Jammu and Kashmir for four years after escaping to India from Bangladesh’s Camp-23 (Shamlapur) in 2016, before returning to Bangladesh again.
They have been transferred to Kutupalong Rohingya camp.
Earlier on Thursday, three Rohingyas were detained from the same camp.
They had also recently entered Bangladesh illegally, escaping from India.
