The arrests were made by the Government Railway Police (GRP) at Agartala station.

The detained Bangladeshi individuals had reportedly entered India illegally from Bangladesh.

The investigation revealed that some of the Bangladeshi nationals intended to travel to Ahmedabad, while others were planning to go to Pune by train.

Md Kashem Miah, a resident of Sepahijala in Tripura, is believed to be the facilitator, helping in the illegal entry and travel of these individuals within India.
