Chairman of Murshidabad District Child Welfare Committee chairman, Sirajul Islam, admitted that the seven Bangladeshi children have been kept in the home even though the detention term had ended earlier.
"They were sent to home by the Juvenile Justice Board. In Murshidabad districts, 14 Bangladeshi children are staying in different homes. The deportation orders of seven of them have been given by the Bangladeshi government but the repatriation has not been done because of delay by the state authorities. The seven others are now under detention," Islam told The Indian Express.
"We had written to the Bangladesh High Commission and even to the Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina requesting them to arrange for their deportation," he said, and added: "The Bangladesh government has responded by issuing the deportation orders. We had also sent a letter to the state home secretary who had instructed the CID to arrange for the deportation of the children. We do not know why the deportation process is taking so much time."
