1- Maung Daw Township Administrator have ordered that at least five to six Rohingyas must do the the duty of Security at night. Therefore, there must be sentry posts in every Rohingya village.
On 14th September 2013 night, 20 Rohingyas were serving sentry duty at different posts at the village of Thula Oo, southern Maung Daw. Meanwhile, Hlun Htein (Security Force) (from Thula Oo Camp) went to the said sentry posts and torured the Rohingyas saying “why did you light your torches while we were coming?”. And then, Hlun Htein extorted Kyat 7,000 from each of them. “If we don’t use torch, then how are we going to give security to the villages? This is the last excuse that Hlun Htein can give to torture us” said one of them.
Of the 20 people, Noor Kabir S/o Sirazul Islam was so severely beaten up by the security force that he can’t move a bit now.
2- On 10th September 2013, Police, Hlun Htein (Security Force), some Rakhine extremists and other collaborators raided the house of Omar Hakim S/o Muhabbat Ali (in the village of ByuHamuu of HaisshuRata (AlayThanKyaw) village tract, southern Maung Daw) under the banner of Guest List Check. Omar Hakim ran away fearing the tortures by the security force and police. Then, the security force and police beat his wife and robbed jewelries and money in the house.
