Maungdaw: Displaced Rohingyas from evacuated villages of Maungdaw are sheltering in few remaining nearby villages and can no longer imagine to return in their original places as they are entirely blazed and under mass looting of barbaric Rakhines (Moghs) on daily basis, complains displaced villagers.

Villagers of Rabaillah are sheltering in the nearby villages of Burashiddafara (Oo Kya Kar), Northern Maungdaw and had to pay money to the authorities for sheltering there. Rabaillah villages was entirely blazed since early September leaving the whole villagers homeless.

Villages like Rammurbill (Re Dwang Sheng), Mangala (They Ra Oo), Kulabill (Yet To Laa), Shodo Gozibill (Dar Gyi Zar) along with Rabailla became almost ghost villages, where hardly any humans can be seen and Rohingya properties like household goods to business tools and left over fences are looted on daily basis by the Moghs (Rakhines) from Kyaung Farang Mogh settlement.

On 25th November a group of 10-15 military personnel arrived in Shodo Gozibill (Dar Gyi Zar) and started patrolling. Seeing them few isolated Rohingyas got frightened and started to run. Following that military besieged the area and started shooting randomly in the fire for more than 2 hours. Details of any human death and casualties in that area are still unknown due to complete isolation.

To threaten and keep the ongoing fear alive in the region every night Military in their camps located in Rabaillah, Kyaung Farang and RemmaThaung fires every night in the air, making explosive and fearful noises.

Earlier on 21st November Immigration department entered the village of Burashiddafar (Oo kya Kar) and started to count the no. of people residing and illegally extorted 1000 Kyat/person as fees. And from sheltering Rohingyas of Rabailla they forcefully took 100, 000 – 150, 000 Kyats/family.

On 19th November in the same village 3 Rohingya teenage of were arrested by the police and was tortured inhumanely. Later one of the youth of 15, named to be Anwar Sadeq S/O Shuna Mia had to pay 550, 0000 Kyat over his release. Fate and identification of the other 2 Rohingyas are yet unknown.

Rare villages like Burashiddafara (Oo Kya Kar), Kiyarifarang (Kya Oo Pyin) and Naing Chaung are fortunately untouched since 25th August by the ongoing fire in the region. Where local fear their fate of being equally unfortunate like other 1000s of Rohingyas and are sensing these hidden signs as conspiracy in uprooting them as they have very heavy experience of being killed and raped in mass no. by the Burmese authorities in late 2016 attack.
