Amnesty India has issued a statement, which said that it regrets the decision taken by India to send back the asylum-seekers to Myanmar, where they will face punishment.

A senior campaigner for Amnesty India, Abhirr VP said that “the fact that the government ignored the UNHCR’s requests for access to the family, who were registered as asylum-seekers, is deeply concerning. The government’s actions indicate a blatant disregard for the international refugee protection mechanism and the mandate of the UN Refugee Agency.”
