Mexican immigration agents say they have detained 11 migrants from India and dozens of Central American migrants.

Eight of the Indian citizens, including two minors, were being transported in a truck near Mexico's border with Guatemala when they were detained. Twenty-five Guatemalan migrants and three Salvadorans were also aboard the vehicle.

The National Immigration Institute said Friday the truck was being driven by a Mexican man who ignored police orders to stop.

The migrants told agents they entered Mexico through Guatemala and paid smugglers $1,500 apiece to take them to the U.S. border.

In a separate raid, three other migrants from India and 18 Central Americans were detained at a bus station in the Gulf coast state of Tabasco.

The migrants were taken to detention centers for possible deportation.
