India's Supreme Court on Monday began hearing a plea challenging a government decision to deport up to 40,000 Muslim Rohingya who have fled Myanmar, a lawyer said.The petition was filed on behalf of two Rohingya living at a refugee camp in New Delhi since escaping Myanmar, where a military crackdown since August 25 has led to more than 400,000 Rohingya taking refuge in Bangladesh.The challenge came after India's junior home minister Kiren Rijiju said last month the government would expel all Rohingya, even those registered with the United Nations.The United Nations says there are 16,000 registered Rohingya in India.
