Buthidaung, Arakan State (Rohingya Vision) – The Burmese (Myanmar) Border Guard Police (BGP) arrested and detained an under-age Rohingya boy for refusing to pay the ransom money in Buthidaung Township last Friday.

The victim is identified to be Karimullah Dil Mohammed, 16, hails from ‘Pharun Chaung Praing Taung’ village in southern Buthidaung Township. The village administrator (who is a Rakhine extremist) and his henchman demanded Kyat 200,000 from him for no reason.

Since he refused to pay the ransom money to them, they accused him of using Bangla SIM Card while he was talking on a Myanmar’s MPT Phone around 6:30PM on October 16. And they (the village administrator and his henchman Salimullah) called up the Captain Tin Tun Oo, the in-charge of the BGP in ‘Nyaung Chaung’ Camp, and his group to get the minor boy arrested.

The BGP arrived in the village and arrested the under-age boy under the charge of using Bangala phone. The next day (on October 17), he was sent to the BGP’s detention cell in Buthidaung Prison.
