New Delhi:

Rohingya refugees from Myanmar in Delhi will be allotted apartments and provided with police protection, Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said on Wednesday.

“India has always welcomed those who have sought refuge,” Mr Puri, Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs, said on Twitter, outlining new provisions for Rohingya refugees in New Delhi.

“India respects & follows UN Refugee Convention 1951 & provides refuge to all, regardless of their race, religion or creed,” he said.

Mr Puri did not elaborate on what he said would be “round-the- clock” police protection.
