Breaking News ! A top Indian court ruled Thursday that Rohingya refugees detained last month in Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir will not be deported without following the proper procedure.The country's Supreme Court was recently approached over the "detention" of over 150 Rohingya Muslim refugees in Jammu on March 6 for being "illegal immigrants."The apex court presided over by Chief Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde, in its ruling stated: "It is made clear that the Rohingyas in Jammu, on whose behalf the present application is filed, shall not be deported unless the procedure prescribed for such deportation is followed."The court, however, rejected the petition for the detained Rohingyas' release and a direction to stop their planned deportation. "It is not possible to grant the interim relief prayed for," the court said in the order.The government prosecutor on March 26 while opposing the plea, said, "India cannot become the international capital of illegal immigrants," according to the local daily Hindustan Times.Advocate Prashant Bhushan, representing the petitioners in the case, was unavailable for comments.
