Sittwe (Akyab) – A Burmese (Myanmar) military staff severely beat a Rohingya Rickshaw-puller on his (the victim’s) head with the gun in Sittwe (Akyab) yesterday morning, causing the victim to heavy bleeding and severe injuries.
The sources have reported that the man identified as Mohammed Salim, 38, hails from ‘Anauk Sanpya’ village was pulling his rickshaw on the main road of ‘Thae Chaung’ village, when the military staff stopped him and whacked him on his head with his (the army staff’s) gun.
