“The Nigerians can speak their native language only,” he said. “While asking questions to them in a variety of ways, they told the police that they were in India for the last couple of days and entered the Bangladeshi side unknowingly,” he further added. SI Mosharraf of the police station has filed a case as the plaintiff against the men. “On Sunday afternoon, they were sent to jail by the court,” he added.
