Centre calls Rohingyas a security threat in affidavit to SC

The Centre on Monday filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court, saying that Rohingyas could pose a serious threat to India as many of them have links with terror organisations and Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence. Responding to a plea against the deportation of Rohingyas, Centre further said that the total number of "such illegal immigrants" in India would be over 40,000.


The report added that the petition filed by Rohingya refugees, is being argued by senior advocates Fali S Nariman, and Kapil Sibal. The Centre has said that the fundamental right to reside and settle in any part of India is available to citizens only. No illegal immigrant can invoke writ jurisdiction of the court for enforcement of Fundamental Rights enjoyed by citizens only, the Centre further said. The Supreme Court has said that it will hear the matter on 3 October at 2 pm.
