19 Bangladeshis held along Kurigram border


Members of Border Guard (BGB) detained 19 Bangladeshi nationals, including six women and two children, from Moidam border in Bhurungamar upazila of Kurigram district early Friday for not having legal documents while returning to the country from India.

The detainees, hailing from Phulbari and Nageshwari upazila, worked in brickfields of New Delhi in India.

A team of BGB arrested them as they were crossing the border without valid documents, said Ashraf Ali, camp commander of BGB Pathordubi camp.
