    Hmm...It seems these people arent Biharis from India,

    Biharis in Bangladesh refer to Pakistanis, who wanted to leave for Pakistan but were not accepted by them, and they dont want to stay in b'desh so are kept in refugee camps. See here Stranded Pakistanis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Biharis in Bangladesh are known as 'Stranded Pakistanis'.
