7 Bangladeshis rescued in Indonesia

07 November 2015, Nirapad News: Indonesia police rescued seven Bangladeshis, who were being trafficked to Malaysia from Medan of Indonesia.

While talked to the Bangladeshis in Langsa camp in Acheh province of Indonesia, it was learnt that seven Bangladeshis were missing from Thursday.

Kuanta police camp confirmed the arrest of the Bangladeshis.

The arrestees were identified as Abdul Karim and Shahin of Chokoria, Afsar and Abdul Gani of Ramu, Abdul Gani of Moheshkhali and Nabi Hossain of Teknaf of Cox’s Bazar district, and Minhaz of Lama of Bandarban district.

However, as many as 48 Bangladeshi trafficking victims, rescued from the sea in Indonesia, are staying in the camp.

Bangladesh ambassador in Indonesia Nazmul Quaunine told banglanews on Saturday (November 7) that they commonly face this sort of incident. But police have yet to inform the embassy due to weekly holiday.

‘Indonesia police usually assist us in migrant issue,’ he added.

‘We will take steps to send the rescued Bangladeshis back home.’

Earlier on October 15, Malaysia police said that they had rescued 46 migrants, who were trafficked from Indonesia.
