Maungdaw: Border Guard Police (BGP) shot a Rohingya man to death in Kuwarbil (Yay Daung) village of Maungdaw on 12th October,2017, reports local sources.

Border Guard Police (BGP) arrived in the village at afternoon and started to patrol over the region. Later they shot an innocent Rohingya man to death, who was walking around his village. “Police fired him with 4 bullets and left him dead” complains an eye witness.

The victim is identified to be Abdu Salaam S/O Dil Muhammed (36) hailing from the Kuwarbil (Yay Daung) village of Maungdaw. Later his dead body was recovered from the scene and was handed over to his family by the local Rohingyas.

On the same day Burmese Military started to threaten Rohingyas in the market areas of Buthidaung Township and even in every junctions to leave for Bangladesh. The military yelled at us by saying “Most of the people left to Bangladesh, why are you people still here? Go and join the people who left for Bangladesh, this is not your country” explains an elderly Rohingya in extremely terrified condition.

Military patrolled heavy over the market areas and started to investigate any common Rohingyas and shop keepers and harassed them brutally. They also tortured pedestrian Rohingyas physically in the markets and Junctions of Buthidaung. Following that they falsely accused 2 Rohingyas and extorted 500, 000 Kyats from them. The victims are identified to be: Nur Hussain and Salim, hailing from Zobborfara of Buthidaung Township.

Militaries open threats and shooting arbitrarily on any innocent Rohingyas are forcing Rohingyas to leave their ancestral land towards Bangladesh, where now more than 800,000 Rohingyas are lingering with extreme inhumane conditions in the new makeshift camps.
