By Aung Aung; Sittwe (Akyab), Arakan State
(Rohingya Vision): A dead body found in the premise of a Hlun Htein (Security Force or Security Police) Camp in Sittwe (Akyab) Township is widely believed to be that of a missing Rohingya man, according to eyewitnesses.
A Rohingya passing-by the camp of the ‘Security Force Battalion 36’ located nearby ‘Sittwe University’ yesterday saw a corpse lying down in the premise of the camp. He told his other Rohingya compatriots and the gathered before the camp to know the corpse.
However, many more police personnel arrived in the camp and drove the crowd away gathering to inquire about the dead body. Many smartphones were also said to have been confiscated as the Rohingya people were trying to take pictures of the corpse.
Around 1:00PM of the day, the police handed the dead body over to local Rohingyas.
“The dead body was almost unidentifiable as to who it is. It looks like he’s been tortured to death. Nobody can enter the Hlun Htein Camp Premise. So, the body has been decayed a lot. He was likely killed around five days ago,” said an eyewitness.
A 29-year-old Rohingya lady, Mrs. Mumina, from ‘Sethamma’ IDP (internally displaced people) Camps has claimed that her husband has been missing for five days.
“My husband went out to work five days ago. Since then, he has never come back. A person told me he saw from a distant that ‘Hlun Hteins’ were talking to my husband (on November 1).
We have inquired every police post if they arrested my husband or not. But no answer,” said the lady whose husband has been missing.
Around 2:00PM of the day, he was taken to the hospital for the post-mortem. However, the doctors, without a written statement, said that he died of heart-attack.
According to the lady claiming her husband to be missing, the man is ‘Abdur Rahim’ of age 32. They have one son and three daughters and were originally residents of Quarter 9 of ‘Makyi Myaing’ village, Sittwe.
“I was sick. So, he went to find out to find some income for my treatment,” the lady recounted.
