Amid a conflict between the Myanmar military and the armed rebel group in Myanmar’s Rakhine, 46 members of the Border Guard Police (BGP) took shelter again in Bangladesh on Wednesday, the authorities said.

So far, a total of 260 BGP members have taken refuge in Bangladesh, said Shariful Islam, public relations officer (PRO) of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB).

Earlier in February, 330 members of Myanmar security forces including BGP, army personnel and immigration officials had taken shelter in Bangladesh.

On February 15, they were handed over to Border Guard Police of Myanmar amid tight security.
