6 Assam charged Meghalaya with trafficking Rohingya

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has filed complaints against six people, Assam and Megaraya, for being involved in the trafficking of Rohingya and Bangladeshi women to India using counterfeit documents.

The charge sheet was submitted to the NIA Special Court in Guwahati on Saturday.

“As a result of the investigation, the accused was involved in the systematic trafficking of underage girls and women in Rohingya and Bangladesh in collaboration with other conspirators based in various parts of India and Bangladesh. It became clear that the accused arranged for transportation, accommodation, and fake procurement, including documents for trafficked Rohingya victims. “

Five of the defendants (Kum Kum Ahmed Choudhry, Ahiya Ahmed Choudhry, Bapan Ahmed Choudhry, Saharam Raska, Jamaldin Choudhry) are from the Cachar district of South Assam. The sixth, Wanbiang Suting, is from East Jaintia Hills, Meghalaya.

Six were arrested in March this year. NIA said defendant Kum Kum Ahmed Choudhry operates a trafficking network from Bangalore.

Both Assam and Meghalaya border Bangladesh, and thousands of Rohingya refugees have been evacuated since the ethnic clash in neighboring Myanmar.
