The Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) detained twelve Bangladeshis on Saturday from Maheshpur upazila of Jhenaidah district shortly after returning to Bangladesh from India without valid documents.

In a media statement, Maheshpur BGB battalion 58 said they detainees include five children, reports UNB.

“BGB members searched a passenger bus acting on a tip-off on Sonagari road around 6:40am and detained them,” a BGB official said.

Some of the detainees told BGB that they had gone to India for work at different times.
