Television pictures showed the men, their faces covered with handkerchiefs, coming out of a police station in the border town of Moreh before being turned over to Myanmar authorities.

Assam Police documents identified the seven as Md Inus, Md Sabir Ahmed, Md Jamal, Md Salam, Md Mukbul Khan, Md Rohimuddin and Md Jamal Hussain, who were arrested on July 29, 2012, and detained under the Foreigners Act, 1964.

The Centre told the apex court that the seven Rohingyas have illegally migrated to India in 2012 and they were convicted under Foreigners Act. To which, according to a report by NDTV, Bhushan replied that it was wrong adding that they had't been recognised.

The plea, therefore, was dismissed by CJI Gogoi's Bench on these grounds. "You don't have to remind us".

"Even the country of their origin has accepted them as its citizens", it said. A statement from UNHCR said that the seven men deported on Thursday were not registered with the refugee agency.

On Thursday, India's chief justice, Ranjan Gogoi, said the court would not interfere with the deportation.

He said that after the conviction they were sent to a detention centre and the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) had contacted the Myanmar embassy for identification of these seven Rohingya. The chief judicial magistrate of Cachar had awarded a three-month sentence for this violation and ordered their detention pending repatriation, it said.

"These are Myanmarese nationals whose identities have been confirmed by their government". The Myanmar government aso issued Certificates of Identity to facilitate travel of these individuals to their hometowns in Rakhine State.

In a separate statement issued by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Tendayi Achiume, the UN Special Rapporteur on racism, said: "The Indian Government has an global legal obligation to fully acknowledge the institutionalised discrimination, persecution, hate and gross human rights violations these people have faced in their country of origin and provide them the necessary protection".

"Upon reconfirming their willingness to be repatriated (on October 3, 2018), and with the full concurrence of the Government of Myanmar, in accordance with established procedures and laws, the Government of Assam has arranged for the repatriation of these seven individuals to Myanmar", he said. They were handed over at the Moreh border crossing in neighbouring Manipur state. "...Documented evidence indicate that the situation in Myanmar is extremely risky for the Rohingya to return and they are likely to be subjected to torture and even killed". According to an estimate, there are now 40,000 Rohingya refugees in India after they escaped the state-sponsored persecution in their own country.

India has deported seven Rohingya Muslims to Myanmar, despite last-minute appeals that doing so put them at risk.

Despite the global pressure on Myanmar, India is actively pursuing a good relationship with the country's army officials.

Guwahati: Indian police said Wednesday that seven Rohingya detained in the country's northeast will be deported to Myanmar, which has been accused by the United Nations of waging a campaign of "genocide" against the Muslim minority.
