Police said they were arrested from Dharmanagar and Churaibari areas on Thursday night while attempting to leave for Hyderabad in search of employment opportunities.

Prima facie it suggests that the group intruded through Sonamura in Sepahijala district and Kailashahar in Unakoti district from Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar, said a senior police officer on the condition of anonymity.

They were supposed to travel to Guwahati by bus and then Hyderabad via train, the officer said.
