BGP Extorts Money from Old Rohingya Farmer

By Rohingya Eye

Maungdaw, Arakan State (Rohingya Vision) – The Myanmar Border Guard Police (BGP) arbitrarily arrested an old Rohingya farmer and extorted money from him for release in southern Maungdaw on November 30, according to a local man.

The victim is identified to be Mr. Rahim Ullah Sultan, 54, hails from ‘Thinbaw Kway (Kullon)’ village in southern Maungdaw. The BGP from the sentry unit post in the village arrested him while he was on his way to hire another farmer for reaping paddy.

A local Rohingya said “he was on his way to hire a farmer. Meanwhile, the BGP arrested him accusing him of marrying to a woman without their permission. Although he repeatedly explained that he didn’t get married any woman, the BGP beat him. And they extorted Kyat 200,000 from the poor old man.

He is an old man. Besides, he didn’t get married to anyone. It is a pure case of bullying and persecution just because they have arms in their hands.”

The Border Guard Police replaced ‘NaSaKa (the former Border Security Force known as Rohingya exterminating machine)’ after it (NaSaKa) was abolished in July 2013. However, the BGP have proven to be even worse than their predecessors, NaSaKa. However, no higher authorities have taken actions against these brutal police to stop their persecution.
