20 teenage girls return home from Indian jail
Twenty Bangladeshi teenage girls returned home through Benapole check post on Wednesday night after serving one and a half years in an Indian prison.
Indian police handed them over to Benapole Police immigration.
The girls hail from Khulna and Narail.
Officer-in-Charge of Benapole Check Post Police Immigration Omar Sharif said the girls illegally entered India two years ago through Jessore border point.
Indian police arrested them from Mumbai and filed a case against them. An Indian court sentenced them to one and a half year's imprisonment each and sent them to Mumbai Central Jail.
On completion of their jail term, the Indian government returned them following exchange of letters between the home ministries of the two countries.
Officer-in-Charge of Benapole Port Police Station Alamgir Hossain said they handed the returnees over to their respective families.
