Police rescued 24 Rohingyas -- 14 female, five male, and five children -- from Teknaf upazila of Cox's Bazar while being trafficked to Malaysia.
The law enforcers also arrested four alleged human traffickers -- Md Ali Chand, Nurul Amin, Rashida Begum, and Razia Begum -- during two separate drives in Borodail Jahajpura and Jaliaghata villages yesterday (Monday), Md Hafizur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Model Police Station, told The Daily Star.
The four were sued in a case under the human trafficking prevention act.
The human traffickers along with the rescued 24 Rohingyas were produced before Cox's Bazar Chief Judicial Magistrate Court today.
The court sent the human traffickers to jail and asked the authorities concerned to hand over the rescued to their respective camp administrations.
