Principal Secretary of Home department L S Changsan said that these people were convicted by judicial courts as foreigners who entered either by unfair means or were staying in the state after expiry of visas. She also said that all of them had completed their jail sentences between 2012 and 2017. They were deported after the Bangladesh government accepted that they were citizens of Bangladesh.
