Rohingyas detained in Jammu not to be deported to Myanmar without due process, says SCPTI | New Delhi | Updated: 08-04-2021 15:24 IST | Created: 08-04-2021 15:24 IST
A bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde passed the order on a plea seeking immediate release of detained Rohingya refugees in Jammu and a direction to restrain the Centre from deporting them to Myanmar.
The Centre had earlier opposed the plea saying that the country cannot be the “capital” for illegal immigrants. During the arguments, advocate Prashant Bhushan, appearing for the petitioner, had said that Rohingya children were subjected to killing, maiming and sexual exploitation by the Myanmar military which has failed to respect international humanitarian law.
