No immediate plans to deport Rohingyas in Bengaluru: Karnataka govt to SC
cancel

The Karnataka government on Tuesday informed the Supreme Court that it has no immediate plan to deport Rohingyas. The court was hearing a plea filed by advocate Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay seeking directions to the Centre and state governments to identify, detain and deport the 72 Rohingyas residing in the state capital of Bengaluru. The state government submitted that the please is not maintainable, devoid of merits and liable to be dismissed.

"It is submitted that the Bengaluru City Police have not housed Rohingyas in any camp or detention centre within its jurisdiction. However, 72 Rohingyas identified in Bengaluru City are working in various fields and Bengaluru City Police have not taken any coercive action against them as of now and there is no immediate plan of deporting them," the state government's affidavit said.

Upadhyay's plea demanded identification and deportation of all immigrants and infiltrators, including Bangladeshis and Rohingyas, claiming they impaired 'security' and 'national integration'.

"The large-scale illegal migrants, particularly from Myanmar and Bangladesh, have not only threatened the demographic structure of bordering districts but seriously impaired security and national integration," the plea had said. It further alleged that there was an organised influx of illegal migrants from Myanmar through agents and touts via West Bengal, Tripura and Guwahati.
