Police in India's north-eastern state of Manipur say they have arrested 20 illegal migrants from Bangladesh.
All over India, there are suspected illegal immigrants from Bangladesh
It is the first time Manipur has reported such arrests following similar
arrests in Assam and Meghalaya.
But the Bangladesh deputy high commission in Calcutta said they have no information about the arrests.
The issue of illegal migration from Bangladesh to India's seven north-eastern states has become an emotive political issue.
Police say that all those arrested in Imphal, the capital of Manipur, have confessed to being Bangladeshi migrant labourers.
If their identity as Bangladesh nationals is proved, they may get up to six months in an Indian jail.
Dhaka denies allegations that Bangladeshis frequently migrate illegally to Assam, Meghalaya and Nagaland.
