Seventeen Bangladeshi Tabligh Jamaat devotees who were detained in India after going there on travel visas have returned home.
Indian authorities handed them over to Bangladesh immigration police through Benapole Checkpost on Sunday night.
Later, they were sent on a 14-day institutional quarantine at Gazir Dargah in Jashore.
The returnees include nine women and they hail from different districts.
Earlier on Friday, Indian police sent back 14 more Bangladeshis.
It was learned that a total of 265 Bangladeshi Tabligh Jamaat devotees went to India on travel visas when the coronavirus started to spread.
It was alleged that the virus was transmitted in India through them.
Besides, they were accused of taking part in Tabligh congregations violating the visa rule.
Later, Indian police detained them.
