Myanmar has handed over 22 Indian nationals who were arrested in that country nearly six months ago to authorities at Moreh border town in Manipur, officials said on Tuesday.

A Myanmarese team led by Deputy Director of Immigration U Kyan handed over the 22 people to Chandel district's Additional Deputy Commissioner Th Chote and Moreh police station officer-in-charge W Nongyai on Monday at Moreh.

Officials said the 22 people, who were allegedly involved in opium smuggling, were arrested from areas in Myamar bordering Singhat sub-division in Manipur's Churachandpur district on May 6.
