Agartala, India (BBN)-Bangladesh government has agreed to take back their nationals, who took shelter in a Tripura village, during a DIG-level meeting of the border guards of both the countries, reports an Indian newspaper.
The date of repatriation of Bangladeshi tribals, staying in the Tripura village for the past four days, has not been finalised yet, reports The Times of India.
After three rounds of meeting, Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB) agreed on the deal but only after carrying out proper verification of the records, said a state home department official.
BGB has sought list of names, group photographs and details about the infiltrators for initiating the repatriation process, said the official.
After a thorough record checking, the BGB would take up the matter with higher authorities, the official added.
As many as 500 Chakma and Tripuri tribals, including women and children, have been staying in four villages in the Gandacherra area in the southeaster part of Tripura along the international borders since Sunday.
Buddhist and Hindu tribals had to flee from their homes in Bangladesh following attacks by miscreants in five villages in the Khagrachhari area.
