Maungdaw, Arakan– Around 9:30PM on 11th April 2014, two Rakhine extremists launched a sudden attack on a Rohingya fisherman in the village of Ngakura (Nagpura) in northern Maungdaw. It left him almost to death.
“Ledaayaa (son of) Faqir Ahmed (Age 33) is a fisherman that hails from the village of Auk-Phyu-Ma (Hasar Bil) of Nga-Kura (Nagpura) village tract, northern Maungdaw. Around 9:30PM, he was coming back from his usual work at a fishery pond by the village. Meanwhile, two awaiting Rakhine extremists awaiting him lauched a sudden attack. They brutally beat him up and squeezed his throat until he lost his consciousness. They didn’t strike on his face hard but on his body so that people can’t see his injuries. Thinking that he was dead, they left him at the place. The Rakhine extremists, hailing from Rakhine village of Ngakura, are:
1) Zaw Moe Twen (son of) Thar Twen Kyaw
2) Maung Maung Sein (son of) Phyo Aung” said a villager.
When the man’s family got the news that he was lying dead by the Rakhine village of Ngakura, they rushed to the place and brought him back home. Fortunately, he was still breathing and alive” said a villager from a nearby village.
“Now Aung San (a Rakhine extremists), the owner of the fishery pond that the Rohingya man used to work at, is spreading rumors that he (the Rohingya man) was attacked by ghosts and goblins, not by the Rakhine extremists” he added.
