On interrogation, Nazim Begum revealed that she had come to India a few days ago and used to work as a housemaid in Mira Road area of Mumbai and was going back to Bangladesh today with the help of Indian tout Ravi, a resident of Bangaon.
The apprehended woman has been handed over to the Border Guard Bangladesh for the sake of humanity and goodwill.
When BSF approached to hand over the woman to BGB, BGB expressed its willingness to hand over two Indian men to BSF.
