The government will start collecting information on undocumented Rohingya migrants in September to determine their numbers, agencies report. Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) will conduct the census in six districts – Khagrhachharhi, Bandarban, Rangamati, Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar, and Patuakhali. “We’ll have to finish the work by March next year,” Project Director Alamgir Hossain told bdnews24.com about the first of its kind project.
