Cox’s Bazaar: An innocent Rohingya youth was attacked by a group of local Bangladeshi near a hilly area in a makeshift camp of Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh yesterday (6th November), reports a source.
The youth was returning home after collecting firewood in hilly areas of Hakimfara refugee camps, where he was stopped by a group of Bangladeshi locals and they demanded money.
As earlier he had paid to another group of Bangladeshi local goons, he didn’t have any more to give to the attacking group.

Following that they attacked him with a sharp object on his hand and he was almost in a condition of losing his hand. Immediately, he was assisted by nearby Rohingya and was admitted to MSF clinic.
According to locals, it’s a usual scene in the makeshift camps, where Rohingya are either harassed, tortured or extorted money by the local Bangladeshi villagers.
