BGB picked the group which includes women and children from a bus stand in Sapahar neighbourhood of the district after local people barred them from boarding a bus Monday morning.
“Locals saw them trying to climb on the rooftop of a Naogaon-bound bus at Modhiul Bazar bus stand. They stopped the group because their movements looked suspicious,” said Naogaon-based BGB-14 Commanding Officer Lt Col Khijir Kha.
Later, BGB brought them to their camps.
“We are questioning them to find out where they came from and where they were heading to. We may take them to the Cox’s Bazar camps afterwards,” said the officer.
