Innocent Rohingya Believed to Be Killed by Border Guard Police
By DM MYARF
Buthidaung, Arakan (Rohingya Vision) — An innocent Rohingya man is believed to have been recently killed by Border Guard Police (BGP) in Buthidaung Township, according to the reliable sources.
The victim is identified to be Kadir Hussein, 54, hails from Kadira hamlet of Attet-Kyuay-Cho-Maw village, Buthidaung Township.
“A Rakhine extremist named U Maung Pyo Thar from Rakhine hamlet of Attet-Kyuay-Cho-Maw (အထက္ကႊ်ဲႀကိဳေမာ္) village has arbitrarily accused Kadir Hussein of stealing a cow. Then, he filed a complaint against him (Kadir Hussein) to the Border Guard Police (BGP) of Camp 16 in Nyaung Chaung (ေညာင္ေခ်ာင္း) village in Buthidaung Township.
Therefore, the commander of the BGP camp arrested the innocent Rohingya man on December 27 without any investigation. The BGP took him to their camp and kept him in detention. In the detention, the BGP punched him, kicked and beat him with wooded and iron rods for two days. His health condition became extremely critical due to the tortures.
Even then, the BGP said on Saturday that they would be transferring him to the Buthidaung police station.
However, people think the police lied so to cover up their killing of Kadir Hussein. Since then, nobody has known Kadir Hussein’s whereabouts. He has been incommunicado” said a local Rohingya on the condition of anonymity.
It has been learnt that he has seven family members including wife and six children. They are extremely worried because of the highly possible killing of Kadir Hussein.
On Saturday, the BGP commander arrested another innocent Rohingya from Pho Kaung Chaung (ဖိုးေခါင္ေခ်ာင္း) and has been still torturing him.
“Besides, he is now to forcibly collect money from Rohingya motor-vehicle owner per month. He announced on Friday that every Rohingya motor-vehicle owner has to give him Kyat 1000-Kyat 2000 every month. And that is against the law.
The previous BGP commander was somehow fair enough. The new major-commander of the BGP camp 16 in Nyaung Chaung is brutal and inconsiderate” added the local Rohingya man.
