Some armed Rakhine miscreants robbed Rohingya fishermen in fishing Kaladan River in Kyauktaw Township on Monday, the reliable sources said.
The miscreants making their way from Kyauktan Rakhine village arrived in the middle of the river by boat, where the Rohingya fishermen were fishing. They pointed out their guns at the fishermen and robbed their fishes, fishing nets and money.
“The fishermen hail from Let Saung Kauk village in Kyauktaw Township. They were robbed by the armed Rakhine extremist at the gun-points. So, when the victim fishermen complaint to the Border Guard Police (BGP) based nearby Kyauktan village, the BGP rather scolded them than taking action against the armed miscreants” said local Rohingya in Kyauktaw Township.
The Kyauktan Rakhine village is situated to the east of the Kaladan River, whereas Let Saung Kauk is a Rohingya village located to the west of the river. The economically boycotted and crippled Rohingyas from the village hardly have any other means to survive but by means of fishing in the river.
