The authorities consist of Border Guard Police (BGP); U Maung Than Htay, the administrator of ‘Pharun Chaung’ village; and Salimullah Eman Hussein, the henchman of the administrator, altogether plotted and arrested Mr, Mohammed Hussein on June 23 on the arbitrary allegation of creating public nuisance.

And he was detained in the BGP station in Nyaung Chaung village, where he was inhumanely the whole night. The next day, on Friday, he was transferred to Buthidaung Prison. Now, they are plotting to charge the innocent man with creating public nuisances.

“Salimullah, the henchman of the administrator Maung Than Htay, demanded Kyat 100,000 ransom from Mohammed Hussein two months ago for his master (the administrator). Salimullah beat Mr. Hussein for his refusal to give the ransom.
