Some on the island have reported conducting hunger strikes to protest being kept there against their will and allege beatings from authorities, according to rights groups.
Chowdhury said the government had decided to return some of those people to Cox's Bazar because "families have been broken up." He said many of the refugees on the island were women who wanted to reunite with their relatives.
