An innocent Rohingya youth was shot by some unknown armed Rakhine terrorists in Kyauktaw Township tonight and is now said to be in critical condition, according to the reliable sources.

The youth is identified to be 26-year-old Shakir (son of) Ali Johar hails from Let Saung Kok village, Kyauktaw Township. He earns his livelihood as a fisherman and was attacked while he was fishing in Kaladan River.

“Shakir (son of) Ali Johar, age 26, went for fishing in Kaladan river (also called Kissapa Nadi) yesterday (on 7th November) evening. He hails from Let Saung Kok village. While he was fishing in the river around 11:00PM, some unknown armed terrorists from a Rakhine village from the other side of the river called Kyauk Dan village started shooting at him using guns.

One of the bullets hit at the lower part of his neck resulting him in critical condition. Fortunately, he didn’t die but it has become too difficult to take out the bullet inside him.

Soon, some military and police personnel arrived at the scene and offered the necessary assistances. They informed the doctor in-charge of the Kyauktaw Government Hospital through the Township Police Chief.

However, the doctor has not arrived yet. The victim is struggling for his life” said an eyewitness requesting to withhold his identity.

It is not the first time that the armed Rakhine terrorists have attacked the persecuted and besieged Rohingya people in Kyauktaw while they (the Rohingya) go for fishing in the river. Similar incidences have occurred many times before.

But the people can’t refrain from going to the river for fishing as it is the only means of survival for the people in the region.”

“The military said that the bullet might be fired using some home-made guns. But it’s not confirmed yet.
