Maungdaw, Arakan State: Two Rohingya women had defended Burmese border
security force (Nasaka) and Natala (new settlers) who entered their homes at
night, while looting their ornaments on February 14, according to a villager
elder from Ngakhura village.

“The Nasaka personnel from Ngakhura outpost under the
Nasaka area number 5 with together Natala villagers went to Ngasaku (Naisapru)
village at night, entered Rohingyas’ homes to loot valuables while male
Rohingyas were out of village for fear of arrest.”

The Nasaka and Natala villagers entered some Rohingya
homes where the two Rohingya women had defended while the security force tried
to snatch the gold ornaments from their bodies till they become serious
wounded. At last, the Nasaka and Natala villagers toke away their ornaments,
said a relative of victims.

The Nasaka and Natala looted the houses of; – Alizuhar,
Md. Rafique, Nur Hussain, Abdu Goffor, Montaz, Lalu, Abdul, Toyoub, Nurul Amin,
Anwar, Abdul Hamid, Abul Kasim, Noor Hakim, Abdul Amin and Anu Meah.

Rohingya males are not staying in their villages for fear
of arrest with so called arrest warrant which the security forces are not given
the detail to the people. So, the security forces are easy to arrest any
Rohingya and to extort money from them with this so called arrest warrant, said
a school teacher from Maungdaw.
