Telangana Government has brought Section-3(2)e of the Foreigners Act. According to this bio, the police claim that the state government has the power to arrest Rohingyas who are residing illegally. However, Shakeel, the petitioner’s lawyer, clarified that the central government has the authority to grant a life sentence under the Foreigners Act. Solicitor General Surya Karan explained that there is a big difference between Section 3(2)e and 3(2)g of the Foreigners Act. The petitioner’s lawyer told the court that the Rohingyas were put in Charlapalli jail instead of being put in camps.
Shakeel, advocate for the petitioners, said that the movement of Rohingyas can be monitored through the detained centers as well. Shakeel objected to being kept in Charlapally jail instead of being moved to detained centers. He said that Charlapalli Jail was not mentioned as a detained center in the bio provided by the government. The petitioner’s lawyer asked the court to give orders to release the Rohingyas. The bench considered the lawyer’s request and directed the police to release the Rohingyas immediately.
