The Centre filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court on Monday on the Rohingya matter. 

The Centre told the Supreme Court that the total number of "such illegal immigrants into our country" was more than 40,000, approximately. 

The Centre added that the "continuance of the Rohingyas’ illegal immigration into India and their continued stay has serious national security ramifications and threats". 

The Centre added that it has "contemporaneous inputs from security agencies indicating links of some unauthorised Rohingyas with Pakistan terror organisations".

The Centre added that some Rohingyas are indulging in illegal/ anti-national activities ie mobilisation of funds through hundi/ hawala channels. 

The Centre added that these Rohingyas are procuring fake Indian identities for other Rohingyas and that they are also indulging in human trafficking. 

The Centre added that the "court may decline interference, leaving to Centre to exercise essential executive function by way of policy decision". 

The Supreme Court will now hear the matter on October 3.
