They have not allowed anyone to enter into their world and have opted for having no contact with the outside world. This island has an area of 59.6 km2 which is almost equal to the Manhattan Island of New York. The inhabitants of this island are believed to be living there for more than 60,000 years. Indian government has enforced a buffer of three miles around North Sentinel Island.
The people are completely isolated and are totally unaware of the modern civilization so the Indian government has decided to pursue no further contact with the tribe as they may have no resistance to the modern illness and if they contact with someone from outside, they may all die.
