'Illegal Rohingya migrants threaten national security, indulge in illegal activities'
Union Minister of State for Home Nityanand Rai in a written reply in Lok Sabha said : "Illegal migrants (including Rohingyas) pose a threat to national security. There are reports about some Rohingya migrants indulging in illegal activities".
He further said: "Foreign nationals who enter into the country without valid travel documents or whose travel documents expire while staying in India are treated as illegal migrants and are dealt with as per existing legal provisions".
Rai also said that there are reports about the influx of Myanmar nationals into Indian territory due to the internal situation in Myanmar.
The minister said a writ petition has been filed in the Supreme Court, praying not to deport Rohingyas from India. However, no stay has been granted by the court on the deportation of the Rohingyas.
