Maungdaw, Arakan State: Nasaka (Burma’s border security force) checked every family lists, houses and shops in Maungdaw south recently, said an aide of Nasaka from Aley Than Kyaw.
“Nasaka personnel checked every family houses and shops who built new houses and shops after communal violence.”
Yesterday, a group Nasaka personnel from the Nasaka area No. 7 went to the Khonza Bill village tract of Maungdaw south and checked every house. The Nasaka also checked family lists and houses in Aley Than Kyaw village tract earlier. But, Nasaka found new building houses and shops in Khonza Bill during the checking. But they built the houses and shops after taking proper permission from the Township Administrator office, said a reliable source.
Some owners of the houses are identified as Kabir Ahmed (30), Sayed Karim (32), Azam Ullah (30), Aman Ullah (35) and Toyub (28), hailed from Khonza Bill under Aley Than Kyaw village tract of Maungdaw south.
Of them, Toyub gave Kyat 20,000 to the Nasaka personnel, but other four villagers were not able to give money to the Nasaka personnel, so their family lists were taken away by the Nasaka personnel. However, the Nasaka told their family members to be present in the Nasaka camp today, said a source.
An elder said from Aley Than Kyaw,” It is nothing, but extortion of money from Rohingya villagers indirectly.”
“How long, we, the Rohingya villagers will survive under the yoke of quasi-civilian government.
