Rakhine Militants Severely Beat a Rohingya Farmer


3rd April 2014

Maungdaw, Arakan– A Rakhine (Magh) armed group inhumanely struck a Rohingya farmer on his way back from his farm in the village of Ye-Nok-Nga-Sar of northern Maungdaw around 2:30PM on 2nd April 2014.

“Sayed Alam (son of) Sheikh Ahmed is a local farmer of the village of Ye-Nok-Nga-Sar of northern Maungdaw. While he was on his way back from his betel farm in a nearby forest, he accidentally met with a group of Rakhine militants suspected to be the members of Arakan Liberation Party (ALP).

They, for no reason, punched him, kicked him and struck him with guns many times. They left him at the place when he was almost to death. Now, even his villagers don’t think he can live further” said a nearby villager.

“Yes, this is what they do. On one hand, we are oppressed and inhumanely persecuted by the government. On the other hand, these Rakhine terrorists always loot us, torture us and kill our people” he added.
