Rohingya Muslim refugees have taken shelter in India and a large number of them in Bangladesh to escape persecution against them by Myanmar authorities.

"For cleanliness campaign, the government is implementing a Rs 12,000 crore action plan through 76 Ministries", he said.

Quader had said on Sunday that Bangladesh needed "crucial" Indian support in handling the crisis. It said a protest note was handed to Myanmar's envoy Friday evening.

However, as news spread of the government filing the said affidavit in the Supreme Court, the Central Agency Section (CAS) of the Union law ministry clarified late on Thursday night that the document was "incomplete".

An estimated 58,000 Rohingya have already fled and crossed into Bangladesh after violence erupted in the state of Rakhine, where there have been ongoing clashes for decades.

The refugees are fleeing a fresh security operation in which security forces and Buddhist mobs have killed men, women and children, looted homes and torched Rohingya villages.

Myanmar's leader Aung San Suu Kyi is under fire by the worldwide community and rights groups for allowing the government troops and the Buddhist mobs to further impose a violent clampdown on the desperate minority. It has offered no proof to back these charges.

The conflict has led to a humanitarian crisis on both sides of the border and raised questions about Myanmar's path under the leadership of Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi after almost 50 years of strict military rule.

Officials speaking on condition of anonymity have said Canada has been reluctant to overtly blame Suu Kyi for the violence against the Rohingya because it believes Myanmar's military is using it to undermine her global reputation.

United Nations agencies fear continued violence in Myanmar may eventually drive up to 1 million Rohingya into Bangladesh. "Not allowed", Mr Tin Maung Swe said, when asked if Mr Murphy will be going to Maungdaw district, at the heart of the strife that began when Rohingya insurgents attacked police posts and an army camp, killing a dozen people.

Rohingya were asked not to take shelter in the homes of their friends or acquaintances, while locals have been asked not to rent houses to the refugees, and bus and lorry drivers requested not to transport the Rohingya, she said. He said more aid was also expected to come via ships soon. He acknowledged that aid distribution remained haphazard three weeks into the crisis.

"There's really no sign that this flow of people is going to dry up", said Chris Lom of the International Organization for Migration.
