Different groups of armed Moghs (Rakhine) arrived and conducted mass looting operations in villages of Kyaung Maung and Chaung Daung villages tracks of Buthidaung Township, where Luien Thein (Security Forces) safeguarded looters instead on Rohingya villagers.

Their looting list includes all basic household goods to Rohingyas’ business tools like large rice mills. “They (Moghs) looted all the Rohingyas’ large rice mills by breaking them apart and started collecting all valuable properties starting from plastic basket to house fences along with backyard trees. In these Luien Thein (Security Forces) guarded them instead of protecting our property and business tools” complaint a Rohingya whose home was entirely looted.

Looters (Moghs) were mostly from Mogh settlements of Turaing and Moghtullafara of Dumbai village track. In their mass looting they used vehicles to transport the looted goods. List of looted villages:
