JAMMU: As many as 90 nationals, including 60 Bangladeshi were deported today to their native places after being released from different jails, an official here said.
“It is a routine matter as these Bangladeshi nationals, lodged in different jails of the state, after completing their stipulated term of punishment, being deported to Kolkata for repatriation,” the official said.
He said the Bangladeshi nationals were escorted by 130 police personnel. He said they left Jammu Tawi railway station this evening in Sealdah Express, adding “the deportation has been done on the guidelines of the Supreme Court which said those foreign nationals completed their punishment should be sent back to their native places.
Pertinent to mention here that most of the Bangladeshi nationals were arrested along the international border while ex-filtrating from and infiltrating into Pakistan. Agencies
