NEW DELHI: As many as 250 Pakistani nationals and 1,750 Bangladeshis were deported in last three years, Rajya Sabha was informed today.
Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju also said some Bangladeshi migrants “may be prone to Islamic fundamentalism and become easy prey for militancy, communal conflicts and anti-India elements like Pakistani agency ISI”.
During the last three years, 2014, 2015 and 2016, more than 250 Pakistani nationals and 1,750 Bangladeshi nationals were deported to their respective countries after due process of identification, he said in a written reply.
The Minister said illegal immigrants enter the country without valid travel documents in clandestine and surreptitious manner.
“There is no accurate data with regard to number of Bangladeshi citizens illegally residing in the country,” he said
