India today said, Assam government has arranged for the repatriation of the seven individuals to Myanmar after reconfirming their willingness to be repatriated and with the full concurrence of the Myanmar government. 

In reply to a media query in New Delhi, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, seven individuals from Rakhine State in Myanmar had been detained in 2012 under violation of the Foreigners Act. 

The Chief Judicial Magistrate of Cachar at Silchar, Assam, had awarded a three-month sentence for the violation and ordered their detention pending repatriation. 

In accordance with established procedures and previous precedent, and with the assistance of External Affairs Ministry, the Embassy of the Union of Myanmar was able to establish the identity of these individuals as residents of that country. 

Myanmar government issued Certificates of Identity to facilitate the travel of these individuals to their hometowns in Rakhine State. In parallel, the individuals also requested in 2016 that the Embassy of the Union of Myanmar should issue them relevant travel documents to facilitate their return to their own country.
