The Centre on Monday told the Supreme Court not to interfere in the Rohingya issue as it was a policy decision to deport them and that some of them were linked to Pakistani terrorist groups.

Senior Advocate Fali S Nariman today appeared for the Rohingyas in the Supreme Court challenging the decision of the Centre to deport them to Myanmar. The Court also granted time to the petitioners to file rejoinder and posted the matter for hearing on October 3.

"No illegal migrant has a right to stay without prescribed legal documents nor is he entitled to the right to reside and move freely within India under Article 19 which is available only to Indian citizens", he adds.

The Centre said that since India is not a signatory to the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, 1951, the obligations concerned to non-refoulement is not applicable.

The community is recognised as illegal immigrants in India and the Rohingyas in India are registered as refugees with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Pointing out that not a single Rohingya was arrested in India for links with the Inter-Services Intelligence or the Islamic State or for doing "hundi" transactions, Owaisi said even if somebody was found indulging in such activity, action should be taken against him or her under the law.

It says the Rohingya can not use the 1951 Refugee Convention or the 1967 Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees since India was not a signatory to either.

"Whatever government will do, will be in nation's interest", Rijiju told reporters ahead of the Supreme Court hearing on Rohingya Muslims who have fled from Myanmar and a large number of them are in India.

On August 14, the government had announced that it was planning to deport all the estimated 40,000 Rohingya Muslim refugees living in India.

"There are elephants in the forest, close to the place where many Rohingya refugees are clearing forest to make huts, police official Chailau Murma said".

The Rohingya are one of Myanmar's many ethnic minorities in the Buddhist-majority nation. The immigrants are spread over Jammu, Hyderabad, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan.

Rights groups have urged India to abide by its global obligations after the government said last month it had asked state authorities to identify and deport the Rohingya living in their terriory.

Rohingya immigrants hail from Myanmar's Rakhine state and according to the prevailing constitutional and political situation in the country, are considered a stateless people.
