At 05:00 PM 2 BGP officials from battalion no. 552 suddenly entered Mingisi (Mee Kyaung Zay) of ward 4 hamlet, Mee Kyaung Zay village tract and forcefully extorted 400,000 Kyats from a local in the area.
The victim was identified to be Muhammed Ayub S/O Muhammed Shofi, 57 and according to local’s statement he had to sell his 2 oxen for fulfilling BGP’s illegal demand.
The victim is a poor villager whose home was also torched down in late 2017 and now he stays with his wife along with their 9 children in another villager’s house, where most of the villagers were forced out towards Bangladesh.
Due to the loss of his home and property he struggles for a daily meal and his wife Nur Nar, 48 is suffering with Hepatitis C. Restriction of the healthcare have kept his wife lingering with life and death like other 1000s of Rohingya in the region.
Similar incidences also strike in Southern Buthidaung Township on 17th April 2018, where 9 BGP form Kyauk Sar Paing entered Poe Kaung Chaung village of Kan Pyin village track and illegally accused 5 Rohingya to extort money.
In the incident BGP accused the victims of destroying empty Rohingya houses, whom were forced to leave village and then demanded 500, 000 Kyats from them. Victims were identified to be 5 sons of Lal Mia.
Intolerable and cruel acts of BGP have left Rohingya in deep despair and after the mass exodus of Rohingya towards Bangladesh, few existing are still paying the cost of living in their own ancestral soil.
