The Supreme Court Thursday stated that Rohingyas detained in Jammu shall not be deported to Myanmar without following the prescribed course of.
A bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde handed the order on a plea searching for rapid launch of detained Rohingya refugees in Jammu and a route to restrain the Centre from deporting them to Myanmar.
The Centre had earlier opposed the plea saying that the nation can not be the “capital” for unlawful immigrants.
During the arguments, advocate Prashant Bhushan, showing for the petitioner, had stated that Rohingya youngsters have been subjected to killing, maiming and sexual exploitation by the Myanmar navy which has failed to respect worldwide humanitarian regulation.
Violent assaults allegedly by Myanmar military have led to an exodus of Rohingya tribals from the western Rakhine state in that nation to India and Bangladesh.
