Sittwe (Akyab), Arakan State
(Rohingya Vision) – A Rakhine (Magh) extremist sent a Rohingya man to hospital after his failed attempt to murder him (the Rohingya) in Sittwe (Akyab) Township yesterday (i.e. January 15, 2016) morning, the local sources report.
The Rakhine extremist is identified to be ‘U Kyaw Bo (son of) U Hla Tun Phru, 39, from Rakhine hamlet of ‘Thae Chaung’ village tract. He trapped the Rohingya man after reportedly hiring him for plucking Coconuts from his ‘Coconut Farm.’
Meanwhile, a Rohingya man passer-by witnessed that he (i.e. the Rakhine extremist) along with a Rakhine extremist group was beating him up and attempting to kill the Rohingya man (hired as a labour). As soon as the man witnessed that, the extremist group leader, U Kyaw Bo, called up the village administrator, U Kyaw Win Swe (also known to be an extremist leader), and the commander of the Security Force (Hlun Htein) Battalion 36, Captain U Than Shwe (a staunch supporter of Rakhines); and sent the victim to the ‘Thakkay Pyin’ clinic.
However, the victim severely injured and under critical condition was again transferred to Sittwe General Hospital as the mentioned clinic was unable to treat him. He has still been in the condition in the hospital, it has been learnt.
The name and other details of the Rohingya victim of ‘Attempt-to-Murder’ are yet to be known.
