India on Thursday deported seven Rohingya immigrants, who had been staying in Assam illegally, to their country of origin, Myanmar, in the first such move by New Delhi. "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", Kumar said.
The seven were detained in 2012 and, since then, had been lodged at Cachar Central Jail in Assam's Silchar town.
The Rohingya are one of many ethnic minorities in Myanmar, where the government sees them as illegal immigrants from neighbouring Bangladesh and denies them citizenship.
The order was passed by a bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph.
India deportedseven Rohingya Muslims that had fled their native Myanmar back to their country on Thursday, sparking concerns that the move could endanger their lives and violate global laws that protect refugees.
Human rights lawyer Prashant Bhushan had earlier urged India's Supreme Court to stop the deportations, or at least allow the United Nations to speak to the deportees and ensure they knew the risks of returning to Myanmar. CJI Gogoi said: "Mr Counsel, we are aware of our responsibilities". They were initially arrested and jailed at the Silchar central prison in Assam in 2012 charged with irregular entry, according to India's Ministry of External Affairs.

"India doesn't know what happens with Rohingya inside Myanmar".
"These are not illegal immigrants but refugees who have migrated due to genocide in their country".
