Benapole: Twenty-four Bangladeshis, including 11 teenagers, returned home on Friday after languishing in Indian jail for two and a half years.

‘They went to India in 2016, enticed by promises of good jobs,’ said Abul Bashar, officer-in-charge of Benapole Checkpost Immigration Police, reports the UNB.

Indian police arrested them when they were travelling to Bangalore and a court jailed them for two and half years for crossing border without valid documents.

They were handed over to Benapole Immigration Police after serving their sentences.

Bashar said they hailed from Narail, Satkhira and Jashore.
