The NHRC intervention came ten days after the MHA told states that they have powers to identify and deport such people while noting that infiltration from Rakhine state of Myanmar in the recent years has become a burden on the limited resources of the country. In a campaign to wipe out the armed rebels, Myanmar's military also targeted unarmed Rohingya civilians, a tactic human rights groups have described as "ethnic cleansing".
