Regarding the gang-rapes, local Rohingya community representatives later lodged reports to the concerned higher authorities including the Commander of the BGP, Major Kyaw Te Zar, earlier known as a just officer, to take actions against the rapist lower-ranking BGP troops.

However, no actions have been taken against the rapist troops yet.

“The commander is not taking against his rapist troops perhaps because it will shameful for the country’s reputation if the rape-case draws attention of international community.

The raped victims — Shamshidah 25, and Aminah Khatun, 28 — are critical condition due to beatings and gang-rapes by the BGP troops. The women are still awaiting justice. And the locals are very sad as nobody is giving the victims any justice.

Therefore, we seek help from anyone possible to come forward to help,” hoplessly said an elderly local.
