UN asked India to refrain the deportation of 7 Rohingya refugees
04 October 2018 Current Affairs:

India plans to deport the seven Rohingya illegals who entered via Assam to Myanmar. But two United Nations (UN) agencies have urged the Indian government to refrain from doing anything that would endanger the lives of the deportees as the current conditions in Rakhine State in Myanmar are not conducive for safe, dignified and sustainable return. 

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned the government that sending the Rohingya refugees back to an unsafe situation in Myanmar would violate UN principles on refoulement.

Also, Shirin Sharmeen Chaudhury, Speaker of the Parliament of Bangladesh, asked countries to exercise caution and ensure the safety of the deportees before sending them to Myanmar’s Rakhine state.
