The Bangladesh Coast Guard has rescued 382 Rohingya refugees from the South Eastern coast of Bangladesh.

The boat is believed to be headed for Malaysia but turned back as strict patrolling of the sea was launched by Malaysia in view of the Corona virus threat.

The Bangladesh Coast guard launched a search operation based on a tip off and located the fishing trawler on Wednesday night. The Coast Guard has brought the rescued person to the town Teknaf near Cox Bazar in Bangladesh.

The Coast Guard spokesperson said that the authorities have launched a probe to find out if some of them came from Rakhine province of Myanmar.
