However, the six Rohingya fishermen are identified to be the locals of Nga-Pwin-Gyi village also known as Napong village, Sittwe Township.

The Border Guard Police is based in a nearby Rakhine village called Zau’puja. They have been notorious for torturing and oppressing local Rohingya and Kaman Muslims in many way for more than a year.

“It was around 8:30PM on June 7. Eighteen Rohingya fishermen, inflicted by hunger and hardships in their livelihoods, on their way back home from fishing in a river arrested by BGP under the pretext that they were illegally sneaking into the country from Bangladesh.

The fishermen were forcibly taken to the Buddhist Monastery in a nearby Rakhine village called Zau’puja. The BGP started to severely beat them. Being unable to any longer hear yelling in pain by the Rohingya fishermen, their co-villagers from ‘Nga-Pwin-Gyi’ village arrived at the monastery in crown to demand their releases.

The Police, however, shot warning shots twice to disperse the crowd instead of immediately releasing the people” said a local Rohingya on the condition of anonymity.

“After 10PM of the night, the police released the released them having tortured them to their hearts’ content. Blood kept shedding from their bodies as they came back” he added.
