AGARTALA, March 5 - As many as 35 Bangladeshi nationals, including 24 women and three children, were arrested by BSF in Tripura for illegally entering India, police said here on Saturday.
The detention took place two days after police arrested 23 Bangladeshis for illegally entering into India on Wednesday.
�BSF troopers on Friday evening arrested 35 Bangladeshis, all tribals, as they came to market in Raishyabari (in northern Tripura) to sell their products and buy other items,� police said. The intruders were later handed over to the police.
The Bangladeshi residents came to Tripura from tribal dominated Chittagong Hill Tracts. The previously detained group came to seek consultation about their ailment from a tribal traditional practitioner. � IANS
