Plea to stop deportation of Rohingya

A petition has been moved in the Supreme Court to restrain the government from taking steps to deport Rohingya refugees lodged in jails or detention centres in Assam or other parts of the country. The plea has been made by Mohammed Salimullah, the lead petitioner in a PIL plea against a proposed government move in 2017 to deport over 40,000 Rohingya. Mr. Salimullah, represented by advocate Prashant Bhushan, alleged that there was a proposal to deport seven Rohingya men held at the Silchar jail in Assam. The plea quoted media reports that following negotiations with the Myanmar government, the Centre would deport them to Myanmar on October 4.
