India Will Deport 20 Million
Illegals From Bangladesh

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India will launch a drive this year to deport more than 20 million illegal immigrants from Bangladesh because they pose a serious security threat, the home ministry said on Tuesday.
The decision was taken at an internal security meeting of state police chiefs, senior state bureaucrats and federal security officials who agreed to conduct the drive between April and June.
"The presence of a large number of illegal foreign immigrants, particularly from Bangladesh, poses a serious threat to the internal security and needs to be tackled with utmost urgency and seriousness that it deserves," a statement from the ministry said.
The home ministry statement did not give details of why illegal immigrants from its eastern neighbour were considered a security threat.
Indian security agencies have in the past accused illegal Bangladeshi immigrants -- most of them Muslims -- of committing crimes, and say some of them work for Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence spy agency.
