Asserting that the Rohingya issue was very sensitive and the Centre's "blanket approach" will not help sort out the matter, the Congress on Monday demanded the government to take all parties into confidence.

Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told the court that the government will provide evidence of Rohingya links with extremist Islamic groups and illegal transfer of money at the next hearing.

The plea filed by the two Rohingya immigrants, Mohammad Salimullah and Mohammad Shaqir, who are registered refugees under the United Nations High Commission of Refugees (UNHCR), earlier stated that "this act (deportation) would be in contradiction with the Principle of Non-Refoulement, which has been widely recognized as a principle of Customary International Law".

Human Rights Watch urged India, the world's biggest democracy, to follow the worldwide principle of non-refoulement, which prohibits sending back refugees to a place where their lives are in danger.

Denying any mass influx of Rohingya Muslims into Sri Lanka, State Minister of Foreign Affairs Wasantha Senanayake said that even if some of them had managed to land on Sri Lankan shores, it was, in all likelihood, in small numbers - of not more than 20-25 people. It says the Rohingya can not use the 1951 Refugee Convention or the 1967 Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees since India was not a signatory to either.

"We were told to hand over our demands to a peon, which we did not do", Haque said. AMM also has ties with Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed's cell in Jammu and Kashmir.

The hearing will continue next month. Over 40,000 of those Rohingyas, who fled Myanmar, have entered India illegally, according to government's estimate.
