More than 705 Rohingya people from camps at Ukhia upazila in Cox’s Bazar district have left for Bhasan Char in Noakhali under the ninth phase of relocation.

Some 246 Rohingya families left for Naval Jetty in Chattogram by 16 buses from Ukhia Degree College ground in two shifts on early and late Wednesday afternoon.

Earlier, Rohingya families assembled at the college ground arriving from the camps amid security measures provided by law enforcers, said Shamsuddoza Nayon, additional relied and refugee repatriation commissioner.

Earlier on December 17, 2021, over 450 Rohingyas left Ukhia camps under the eightth phase and reached Bhasan Char the next day.

Since December in 2020, around 19,848 Rohingyas have been taken to Bhasanchar in ninth phases.
