    to the family for bury, said a relative of victim.

    The
    Nasaka personnel are using – so called arrest warrant list and
    involved in the riot- to extort money from Rohingyas and some time
    they fired to Rohingya villages to show the power and to flee the
    males Rohingya from village for looting the Rohingyas’ properties
    and to attempt to rape the females Rohingyas, according to a teacher
    from Maungdaw south.

    The
    so-called emergency Act 144 and curfew re only for Rohingya community
    not for other community- Rakhines and Burman- and the security force
    is only applying this act on Rohingya to arrest, extort, rape and
    looting.”
