Amid tight security a total of 330 members of Myanmar government forces including Border Guard Police (BGP) and customs officials, who have taken shelter in Bangladesh, were sent back to Myanmar on Thursday. 

According to a BGB press release, 330 Myanmar nationals including 302 Border Guard Police (BGP) members, four BGP family members, two army personnel, 18 immigration personnel and four civilians, were escorted by the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) and handed over to the BGP. 

BGB's Cox's Bazar region has overseen the handover process as BGB Director General (DG) Major General Mohammad Ashrafuzzaman Siddiqui and Myanmar Ambassador to Bangladesh U Aung Kyaw Moe were present.

The Myanmar officials started crossing border since February 4 amid heavy fighting in Myanmar between its forces and rebel group Arakan Army.
