A woman from Matinagar in the Sepahijala district along the Indo-Bangla international border was detained by a combined team of security personnel on Tuesday. She is allegedly involved in the cross-border trafficking of Rohingya and Bangladeshi nationals.

In an interview with reporters, Tapas Das, the official in charge of the Government Railway Police at the Agartala railway station, stated: “On March 30, a case was filed at the GRP police station regarding the detention of thirty citizens of Bangladesh. Many persons were placed under police remand in order to conduct investigations. We discovered that a Parul Akhter from Matinagar was intimately involved in these crimes based on information from cell phones that were taken from the detained and the Bangladeshi nationals.

She was running away. Our sources told us last night that she went back home. According to the law, GRP, Tripura Police from Amtali station, and the Border Security Force (BSF) set up an ambush close to her home and took her into custody after dawn,” Das continued.

She used to harbour and help Rohingya and inhabitants of Bangladesh pass foreign borders. Her house is directly next to the border fence,” he stated.

To find out if there is another person involved in the operations, the woman is being questioned. “We will take necessary legal action against anyone else found to be engaged as well. The GRP official stated, “We are identifying and apprehending individuals who are attempting to use the Agartala train station for human trafficking, one by one.

On March 23, while they were preparing to board a train to Chennai, seven nationals of Bangladesh who had illegally entered Indian territory were apprehended at the Agartala railway station in Badharghat. Several Rohingya and Bangladeshi nationals have been arrested over the past few months, and three more Rohingya people were detained in March from the railway station while they were attempting to board a train to Hyderabad.
