He started attacking the shop belongs to Mohammed Zubair. He broke the glasses of the shops and vandalized the village. He tried to rob goods from the shop. Since the neighboring shopkeepers came for the rescue of the shop, the extremist Rakhine was unable to rob anything” said an eyewitness declining to be named.
