Maungdaw, Arakan State: Nasaka (Burma’s border security force) allegedly arrested a Rhingya youth on November 6, in Maungdaw over the allegation that he was involved in the riots of June 8 and instigated the violence, said a neighbor of the victim who denied to be named.
“The victim was identified as Roffique (25), son of Ismail, hailed from Panug Zaar village of Maungdaw Township.”
A group of Nasaka from Nasaka area No.6 of Maungdaw Township went to the said village and arrested Roffique over the said allegation and was brought to the local Nasaka camp where he was detained, so far.
The Nasaka officer demanded Kyat 10 million to be released, otherwise, he will be sent to jail, a local elder said.
His family is rich so that the Nasaka personnel will get huge money, if the Nasaka gives threatening to his family directly or indirectly, said a close relative of the victim.
Nasaka is always trying to extort money from Rohingya villagers after implicating in any case against the Rohingya villagers by using of power. There is no justice in Arakan and no counter checking by concerned authorities.
