, 12 news, a view

The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to order the release of Rohingyas detained in Jammu but held they should not be deported without following proper procedure.

A Bench led by Chief Justice Sharad A. Bobde said it was “not possible” to agree with the plea of Mohammad Salimullah, a member of the Rohingya community represented by advocates Prashant Bhushan and Cheryl d’Souza, to “release the detained Rohingya refugees immediately and direct the Union Territory government and the Ministry of Home Affairs to expeditiously grant refugee identification cards through the FRRO for the Rohingyas in the informal camps”.

However, the CJI, who pronounced the order, made it clear to the authorities that the “Rohingyas in Jammu shall not be deported until the procedure is followed”.
