Rakhine Extremists Assault Rohingya Village with ‘Attempt to Rape’ Accusation
By RVision Correspondent
(RVision TV) — The Myanmar Border Guard Police (BGP) and the Rakhine extremists assaulted a Rohingya village in Buthidaung Township and its villagers yesterday with a wild accusation of harassing and attempting to rape a Rakhine woman, a reliable source in the village reports.
“A Rakhine woman was fishing in a Rohingya-owned farm-land at ‘Boli Fara’ village of ‘Zaydi Taung’ village tract yesterday. While she was netting the fishing, she was destroying the paddy crops. Therefore, the owner of the land prevented from fishing. Then, then started arguing and quarrelling.
So, she left to her village, Mrong Daung village of San Goe Taung village tract. Soon after, numbers of the Border Guard Police members and Rakhine extremists arrived to the Rohingya village and started attacking its people.
They plundered many Rohingya homes and physically injured many people,” reported a Rohingya from Zay Di Taung village.
During the assault, the Rakhine extremists and the Police told the villagers that they were punishing them because one of their villagers harassed; and attempted to rape and kill the Rakhine woman (in the report). Only, then the villagers came to know why they were being attacked.
The locals are worried because the Rakhine extremists with the supports of the armed forces are repeatedly trying to create riots and attack them on mere accusations.
