Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Saturday a total of 495 nationals of different countries are now languishing in Bangladesh jails.

The minister came up with the assertion while addressing as the chief guest at a seminar titled ‘Combating Trafficking: Repatriation of Victims of Trafficking’ organised by National Human Rights Commission at a city hotel.

The home minister said though 86 of the foreign nationals were freed by courts, but their home countries have refused to take them back that is why they are still languishing in jails.
