Kyauktaw, Arakan- Around 9PM on 4th April 2014, Rakhine (Magh) terrorists brutally beat up a23-year-old Rohingya in the village of Pisi-Paik-Thay (Nidam), Kyauktaw township.
“Shafee Alam (son of) Alimuddin (Age 23) is a local of Nidham village, Kyauktaw township. He went to net fish in Kaladan river in the evening. As he was waiting on his small peddle-boat for fish to be netted, a group of Rakhine terrorists arrived at the scene. They started beating him up in gang saying ‘don’t you know you kulars are not allowed to fish here?’(Note: Kular is a derogatory term used by racist Burmese and Rakhines against Rohingya and any other people of Indian descends.)
Thinking that he was dead, the terrorists left him on the boat. Fortunately, he gained his sense back and managed to come back to the village” said Aung Aung, a local of the victim’s village.
