Arrested Bangla immigrants move high court for bail

Last Updated 31 October 2019, 18:41 IST

Twelve Bangladeshi immigrants arrested last year by the Sarjapur police have moved the high court for bail.

Hearing the bail applications of Babul Khan and Thania — arrested on August 22, 2018, at Kommasandra village in Anekal taluk — the single-judge bench of Justice K N Phaneendra directed the Union government to provide information on the Central government’s procedures concerning foreign citizens.

He also sought the state government’s opinion on keeping the Bangladeshi immigrants in a separate detention centre rather than in prison as they are citizens of a neighbouring country.

The bench said while the Bangladeshi citizens migrated to the city by committing technical mistakes, they would lead a respectful life until the case is disposed of since they did not commit any crime. The matter has been adjourned to November 5.
