The plea in the top court also sought a court order to have those detained released from the detention centre.


A Rohingya refugee filed a fresh plea in the Supreme Court, urging the top court to restrain the government from deporting hundreds of Rohingyas detained recently in Jammu. 

The Rohingyas, Muslims from Myanmar, have fled a targeted cleansing by the majority Buddhists in that country.

The fresh application, filed by Mohammad Salimullah through advocate Prashant Bhushan, sought to pre-empt any adverse action against the community by the Indian state which has argued that they are a national security threat.

Police recently rounded up 150-170 Rohingyas settled in Jammu, creating panic among the community. Some of them have since been housed in a detention centre.

Star Online Report
Regional rights body 'Fortify Rights' has called for Malaysia to release detained refugees and prevent arbitrary detention of new arrivals to minimise health risks due to Covid-19.

"Malaysia should take extra precautions now to protect the rights of refugees and refrain from detaining them," said Matthew Smith, chief executive officer of Fortify Rights, in a statement today.

"Detaining refugees after they pass a quarantine and during a pandemic would be irresponsible and inhumane," he said.

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia has detained four foreigners, including two ethnic Rohingya from Myanmar, on suspicion of being involved in militant groups, police said on Tuesday.

Malaysia is home to tens of thousands of Rohingya Muslims, who have for years arrived in the Southeast Asian nation from Myanmar or Bangladesh seeking asylum.

More than 700,000 Rohingya refugees fled western Myanmar for Bangladesh, U.N. agencies say, after insurgents attacked Myanmar security forces in August 2017, triggering a sweeping army-led crackdown.

Both of the Rohingya suspects were detained for providing support to the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), the insurgent group said to be behind the 2017 attacks, Malaysia’s Inspector General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador said in a statement.
