The family was residing in Shiv Nagar for years. While intelligence reports have confirmed that the family has migrated to Jammu and the search is on to locate its whereabouts there, the city police have begun to establish the floating network of the Rohingyas which begins in Punjab from Zirakhpur and while passing through Jalandhar culminates in Jammu. “Majority of them are daily wagers and live in slum areas where they mix up with the Muslim and Bengali community.
