Buthidaung: A guiltless Rohingya man was arrested by the authorities on 8th October, 2017 and is incommunicado now, complains his family who believes him to be killed by the authorities, reports local sources.
The victim is identified to be Sirajul Mustafa hailing from RazarBhidh village of Buthidaung townships, whose vehicle was also looted earlier by the same authorities consisting of Border guard police (BGP), Military, Police and Leuin thein.
Consecutively on 9th October 201, the same group of authorities arrived at same village and started to hunt other 8 -10 innocent Rohingya men, whom fled due to fear of arbitrary arrest. Patrolling and tortures of the Authorities are driving out the remaining Rohingyas and the hunted men’s families to leave their village and join the journey of unknown fate towards the Bangladesh.
Military Brutalities and threat of Rakhine extremists (Moghs) are also forcing the remaining Rohingya families of Zey Di Taung Village of Buthidaung Township to join the ongoing exodus.
The village consisted on 120 families earlier, where now hardly 40 families are living in extreme threats and inhuman situations. They are constantly threaten by the nearby Rakhine (Mogh) villagers, who yells the Rohingyas by patrolling the village every day. Rakhines (Moghs) shout at us by saying that “If you don’t evacuate the village yourself, we will entirely blaze your homes and build our homes here” reports a local Rohingya on the condition of anonymity.
Threats on remaining Rohingya and men hunt on innocent Rohingya men seems to add up the ongoing exodus towards Bangladesh, where more than 800,000 Rohingya have already reached the shores and are lingering with all basic humanitarian needs.
