UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is concerned about 88 Rohingya refugees and asylum-seekers who were taken away by the law enforcement authorities from the front of our office in New Delhi today. Refugees and asylum-seekers had travelled to New Delhi to seek assistance.
UNHCR is seeking immediate access to those who have been transferred to a Government facility at this stage. We urge the Indian authorities to ensure appropriate care and support to these refugees, among whom are a number of pregnant women and children.
