Border Guard Police Extort Money from Rohingya Passers-by

By Rohingya Mirror

Maungdaw, Arakan (Rohingya Vision) — Myanmar’s Border Guard Police (BGP) charged two Rohingyas under baseless accusations and tortured them for ransom in northern Maungdaw on Tuesday, according to the reliable sources.

The two innocent Rohingyas — identified to be Abu Toyub Haasu Meah, 27, and a motor-taxi driver – were arrested around 4:00PM on June 30. They were beaten severely until sunset by the BGP at the sentry post in Zaydi Pyin hamlet of Longdoong village tract, northern Maungdaw.

While passing through the BGP check-post in Zaydi Pyin on their way back from Sin The Pyin hamlet of ‘Longdong’ village to ‘Nga Sa Kyu’ village, the BGP stopped them on pretext of search. Although nothing illegal was found on the motor-taxi, the BGP were trying to arbitrarily accuse them of possessing ‘Bangla SIM’ to extort money.

Therefore, Abu Toyub tried to escape but was chased and caught by the BGP. And then, the BGP started torturing them, according to an eyewitness.

Later, the BGP extorted Kyat 80,000 from Abu Toyub and Kyat 40,000 from the taxi-driver for release.
