Three Bangladeshis including a woman returned home on Sunday night after languishing in Indian prison for two years.

The returnees are Imran Hossain, 26, son of Joynal Hossain, of Sadarpur in Faridpur, Elahi Mia, 55, son of Shaheed Mia, of Bancharampur in Brahmanbaria and Taslima Akter, 21, daughter of Ali Molla, of Digholia in Khulna.

Indian police arrested them from different parts of the country when they went there in search of work and a court sentenced them to two years jail in India.

Ahsan Habib, officer-in-charge of Benapole check-post immigration police, said Indian police handed them over to Benapole immigration after their jail term ended.

All the three victims were taken to a 14-day mandatory quarantine. After completion of 14-day quarantine they will be handed over to a local NGO.
