4 trafficked boys return home

Four Bangladeshi boys, who were trafficked to India two to three years ago, returned home through Hili border check-post in Hakimpur upazila of the district yesterday.

The returnees are Zafar Isqbal, 12, son of Jamal Hossain of Laksham upazila in Cumilla, Mehdi Hasan, 17, son of Hasan Mahmud of Melandah upazila in Jamalpur, Rabiul Islam, 16, son of Abu Bakkar Siddique of Chakoria upazila in Cox's Bazar, and Jahan Mardi, 18, son of Mojibar Mardi of Joypurhat Sadar upazila.

In Charge of Hili Immigration Post Abdus Sabur said the four boys were trafficked to India through different borders about two to three years ago.

BSF members and Indian police later caught the boys from different areas and sent them to a correction centre in Balurghat under South Dinajpur district in the Indian state of Pashchimbanga.

After completion of the necessary legal process between the two neighbouring countries, Indian Immigration Police handed them over to their Bangladesh counterparts yesterday, Sabur said.
