New Delhi, July 22 - Australian Minister for Immigration and Border Protection Scott Morrison Tuesday met Home Minister Rajnath Singh to discuss issues relating to illegal migration.

The Australian minister said a boat with 157 people was seized by Australian authorities in the last week of June, an official press release said.

Rajnath Singh said India does not support any kind of illegal migration either into its own territory or illegal migration of its citizens to foreign territories.

The release said India sought consular access to the concerned people and emphasised the importance of handling such cases in a legal and humanitarian manner so that no one was harmed.
