Some 137 more Rohinygas entered Bangladesh through different points of Shah Porir Dwip in Teknaf upazila from Rakhine state of Myanmar on Sunday, officials says.

The displaced Myanmar nationals, including women and children, crossed the border through Jaliapara, Dakkhinpara and Paschimpara points of the island, said Delwar Hossain, senior fisheries officer of Teknaf upazila.

Jahid Hossain Siddique, Teknaf Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO), said earlier on Saturday, some 54 Rohingyas entered Bangladesh through Gholachar point of Shah Porir Dwip.

According to Rohingya Refugee Repatriation Commission (RRRC), over 678,000 Rohingyas have so far fled to Bangladesh because of violence and military crackdowns in Rakhine state since August 25, 2017.
