Guwahati: Six suspected Rohingyas were apprehended at the Dharmanagar railway station in North Tripura on Thursday for travelling without proper travel documents.
Three of the six Rohingyas held are men, one is a woman and two are children.
While the woman has a UN identity card as a Rohingya refugee, the other five were unable to present any acceptable documents and claimed to have come to Dharmanagar to visit a relative, official said.
However, all six were taken to the Dharmanagar police station for interrogation in order to learn their true identities.
The Rohingyas took the Tripura Sundari express from Delhi to Dharmanagar, a long-distance train that connects Agartala and the national capital and that their final destination was Kailashahar, a border sub-division of Unakoti district, official added.
We found inconsistencies in their claims. Furthermore, they were unable to communicate in Bengali or Hindi. We shall follow the law and take legal action if they fail to produce valid documents, official claimed.
