At around 8:30 AM an elderly Rohingya named Aamir Hussain S/O Kabir Ahmed, 55 was attacked by an elephant on his way to fetch water in Shilhali village of Maungdaw township.

Following the dangerous attack he is in critical health condition and was taken to police post in Kuirhali village for taking permission to travel Bangladesh immediately. According to villagers he is given travel permit and is on his way to Bangladesh for treatment.
Since last 2 months few remaining Rohingya in Khuirhali, Shilhali and Kyaung Maung are is extreme trouble for these elephants in the area. According to locals around 30 elephant were spotted in Khuirhali alone and they destructs Rohingya properties and crops on daily basis.
Although officials know about the elephant no measures was taken to help the civilians for protection. Authorities such silence made Rohingya to think deeper and they believe it is government who set them free in public areas for further torturing the Rohingya.
This is the first human victim of these elephant attacks in these areas but on daily basis either houses or properties are being destructed.
