For poverty, harassment of doctors and difficult transportation, a family member of the poor pregnant woman called in Nozir, a medically skillful body, in order to prescribe some remedies for the patient on 4, August. After a while visiting the patient, he went out to his home.
At the mid-way, 7 policemen from Makyi Chaung camp arrested him alleging as a quack and harassed him physically and mentally. Then they demanded 97,5000 Kyats for his release. To safeguard Nozir’s life, his family as well as relatives somehow managed the money by taking loans and fulfilled their illegal demands.
It is clear that NLD government like military regime instigates the authorities to extort money continuously from the innocent poor Rohingyas in order to make them flee their ancestral land, the villager added.
