Buthidaung: Yesterday in Ward No. 1, Buthidaung Township, some Rakhine extremists terrorized two Rohingya families of Maulavi Noor Muhammed and Shuna Alee s/o Yusuf from the very ward at around 7:00pm under the pretext of electrical disturbance. They beat the family members and looted the valuables.



“It is thought that the electricity was porously cut off to make such attacks. In such cases, the respective authorities not only lack to respond our call for help, but also torture the victims to extort money.” said by a resident of Buthidaung to RB News.


On January 21, in Fuimalee village, Buthidaung Township, the Nasaka from sub-camp (21) arrested two men, Laloo s/o Mubarek Husin and Nazeer Ahmed s/o Ahmed on charge of sending people to Malaysia. However, as usual, both were released on a ransom of 2 Millions Kyats. Actually, these are the Nasaka and other authorities who ease human trafficking procedures of Rakhine traffickers on bribery.
