Maungdaw – The Burmese Border Guard Police (BGP) shot a Rohingya village-man to death in southern Maungdaw today (on Dec 19), it has been reported.
The unlawful killing took place at the village of ‘DuChiraDan’ locally known as ‘Kilaidaung’ at around 10 am today, when a group of the BGP conducted a raid on a villager’s residence in the pretext of a search for WY (Yaba) tablets.
“The group of the BGP didn’t find out any illegal materials at the residence of U Hamid (55), s/o Noor Mohammed. Yet the BGP commander simply dragged him out and shot him at his back at a point-blank range”, said an eyewitness, speaking to Rohingya Vision TV on the condition of anonymity.
The group of the BGP came from the Camp 15 at the ‘Maggyi Chaung’ village locally known as ‘Faatonza.’ After killing him, the BGP left the body where he was killed at and they left the place without taking responsibility for the death.
Meanwhile, a genocidal operation on the Rohingya population in northern Maungdaw continues.
After killing Hamid, the BGP misinformed the military that he was a militant and there are more militants hiding in the village of Duchiradan to justify the unlawful killing.
More than 100 Burmese military arrived afterwards and began raiding the village of Duchiradan. The Rohingya men fled to escape from arbitrary arrests and now the military are plundering homes in the village.
Meanwhile, Aung San Suu Kyi is having a meeting with ASEAN foreign ministers in Yangon.
