Buthidaung, Arakan An innocent Rohingya man is believed to have been recently killed by Border Guard Police (BGP) in Buthidaung Township, according to the reliable sources.

The victim is identified to be Kadir Hussein, 54, hails from Kadira hamlet of Attet-Kyuay-Cho-Maw village, Buthidaung Township.

“A Rakhine extremist named U Maung Pyo Thar from Rakhine hamlet of Attet-Kyuay-Cho-Maw (အထက္ကႊ်ဲႀကိဳေမာ္) village has arbitrarily accused Kadir Hussein of stealing a cow. Then, he filed a complaint against him (Kadir Hussein) to the Border Guard Police (BGP) of Camp 16 in Nyaung Chaung (ေညာင္ေခ်ာင္း) village in Buthidaung Township.

Therefore, the commander of the BGP camp arrested the innocent Rohingya man on December 27 without any investigation. The BGP took him to their camp and kept him in detention. In the detention, the BGP punched him, kicked and beat him with wooded and iron rods for two days. His health condition became extremely critical due to the tortures.

Even then, the BGP said on Saturday that they would be transferring him to the Buthidaung police station.

However, people think the police lied so to cover up their killing of Kadir Hussein. Since then, nobody has known Kadir Hussein’s whereabouts. He has been incommunicado” said a local Rohingya on the condition of anonymity.

It has been learnt that he has seven family members including wife and six children. They are extremely worried because of the highly possible killing of Kadir Hussein.

On Saturday, the BGP commander arrested another innocent Rohingya from Pho Kaung Chaung (ဖိုးေခါင္ေခ်ာင္း) and has been still torturing him.

“Besides, he is now to forcibly collect money from Rohingya motor-vehicle owner per month. He announced on Friday that every Rohingya motor-vehicle owner has to give him Kyat 1000-Kyat 2000 every month. And that is against the law.

The previous BGP commander was somehow fair enough. The new major-commander of the BGP camp 16 in Nyaung Chaung is brutal and inconsiderate” added the local Rohingya man.

Rakhine extremist doctors and nurses killed a pregnant Rohingya woman during her delivery in the Sittwe General Hospital yesterday, according to the reliable sources. 

The deceased victim is identified to be Salimah, mother of three children, hailed from Paikthay village also known as Zailla Fara in Kyauktaw Township.

“28-year-old Salimah (daughter of) Mv Yahya started suffering from labor pain last Saturday. She struggled with the pain for four days. Eventually, her family decided to admit her to the Sittwe General Hospital hoping that she would have less pains and smooth baby delivery. So, her husband Mohammed Twahir and her elder sister Bibi Maryam accompanied her as her caretakers to the hospital.

They admitted her in the Sittwe Hospital around 4:00PM yesterday. But the hospital authority forced her husband back to Kyauktaw Township saying that there was no need of him since his wife got admission to the hospital.

Unfortunately, the hospital authority informed her relatives at Furan Fara village in Akyab (Sittwe) that she together with her new born baby passed away around 10:00PM on the same day.

The authority discharged dead bodies of the mother-baby-duo and handed them over the deceased’s relatives in Furan Fara around 4:00PM today. Afterwards, her funeral was performed by the Rohingyas in Furan Fara.

Her family including the parents, the husband and the children wanted to go to Sittwe to see and bury her dead body. However, the authority didn’t allow them. She has left three children, one boy and two girls, behind” said a local Rohingya in Kyauktaw Township.

It has been learnt that the locals are extremely worried about the situation of the caretaker of the patient, Bibi Maryam, who has been still held by the hospital authority.

“The authority said that they would send her back to her native village, Paikthay, Kyauktaw Township soon when she requested she wanted to accompany her sister’s funeral. They have not even freed her yet.

On the other hand, the body of the deceased woman, Salimah, was full of bruises and severe injuries possibly resulting from beatings and tortures. It is highly possible that the hospital’s Rakhine extremist doctors or nurses have killed her. We will know what happened exactly when the caretaker is freed by the hospital authority” he continued.

This is not the first time that the Rakhine extremists that administer and operate the hospital have killed Rohingya patients. Killings of the Rohingya patients have taken place many times before. It may be called Rohingya exterminating halls.
