The Supreme Court had fixed September 18 for hearing a plea challenging the government's decision to deport illegal Rohingya Muslim immigrants back to Myanmar.

On Wednesday Aung San Suu Kyi's office announced she had cancelled a visit to NY for the meeting.

If refugees from Tibet, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka can stay in India, why not the Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar, AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi asked.

"Our field research backs what the satellite imagery has indicated -that the Burmese [Myanmar] military is directly responsible for the mass burning of Rohingya villages in northern Rakhine State", said Phil Robertson, deputy Asia director at Human Rights Watch.

"Sheikh Hasina will raise the Rohingya issue during her speech at the UN General Assembly".

But instead of going to NY this year she will make a television speech at home on Tuesday. "It undermines India's security", Rijiju said in a tweet on Wednesday.

About 240,000 children, of whom 36,000 are less than a year old and 92,000 are under five years old, are living in squalid conditions where they are vulnerable to the spread of disease, the United Nations children's agency said on Friday.

The Rohingya immigrants, who fled to India after violence in the western Rakhine state of Myanmar, have landed in Jammu, Hyderabad, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan.

"These provocative acts may lead to unwarranted consequences". Myanmar did not immediately comment. The affidavit read that the Centre had received contemporaneous inputs saying that the some of the Rohingyas were linked with the Pakistan- and Bangladesh-based terror organisations. "After the formation of Bangladesh, the Chakmas came to India, and got the status of refugees", he said. Only about 40,000 Rohingyas are acknowledged as citizens in their country.

Bangladesh is also growing hostile to the Rohingya, more than 400,000 of whom live there after fleeing Myanmar since the early 1990s.

Condemning the violence, the Security Council also called for humanitarian aid workers to be able to reach those in need in Rakhine state.

Aid groups worry diseases like cholera will spread through the settlements. "The strong ones run to the trucks and they get the food first, it is more hard for women and children".

Quader had said on Sunday that Bangladesh needed "crucial" Indian support in handling the crisis. It will be even worse if we happened to be Burmese,"Dawn reported".

Salam said the Bangladeshi government was making efforts to combat the situation.

"Aid agencies are doing all they can to help, however the humanitarian response needs to be rapidly scaled up, and that can only be done if the global community steps up funding".

Deputy inspector general of 23 Sector Assam Rifles Brigadier MS Mokha also said in Aizawl that there was no influx of Rohingyas to Mizoram yet.

The UN said two children and a woman were killed in a "rampage" when a private group handed out clothes near a camp on Friday. We are really concerned'.
