By Rohingya Vision TV Correspondents | 4th October 2018

Cox’s bazaar: In fear of repatriation to Arakan, Burma an elderly Rohingya attempted to suicide and is being hospitalized in a makeshift camp of Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh yesterday (3rd November), reports a source.

The 60 year old Rohingya named to be Dil Muhammed S/O Wahidur Rahman attempted to suicide by taking bleach powder in fear of returning back to Burma.

The tragic incident took place at Unciparang makeshift camp of Cox’s Bazaar, where immediately he was rescued and is now admitted to the nearby MSF clinic.

When asked about his reason of suicide, Dil Muhammed said “Its better to kill myself here rather than going back and killed by inhumane torture of the Burmese forces,” after coming back to senses.

The victim originally hails from Ashikkafara village of Maungdaw Township, which he had to flee in late 2017 following Burmese forces’ inhumane tortures.

The repatriation announcement in mid-November have created a panic and fearful situation in the camps and the Rohingya whose names are on the list are further worried.

Since late 2016, nearly 1.3 million Rohingya are sheltering at the makeshift camps of Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh and they have repeatedly denied the forceful repatriation deal in the ongoing genocidal operation in Arakan, Burma.
