30 more Rohingyas arrested along the Burma-Bangladesh border

Teknaf, Bangladesh: Thirty more Rohingyas were arrested by the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) along the Burma-Bangladesh border yesterday, Jafar said from border area.   “They were arrested from different areas of Teknaf and Gudum by a BGB team of Battalion No. 42 and 17 after being conducted operation on Monday.”

According to official, BGB arrested twenty-four Rohingyas at Gumdum under the Bandarban district while they were trying to enter the Bangladesh from Arakan State, Burma.

After the arrest, they were pushed back again to Burma through the point of Gumdum, official said.

Meanwhile, a BGB team of Teknaf Battalion No. 42 arrested another six Rohingyas at Teknaf border while they were trying to penetrate to Bangladesh by crossing the Naff River, said a BGB source.

Rohingya Muslims frequently cross the Burma-Bangladesh border because of seeking shelter in Bangladesh as a neighboring country. In Arakan State, Burma, there is no life security of Rohingyas. The people are facing food shortage, movement restriction, and no access to do any work to support their family members. Meanwhile, the authorities concerned make arbitrary arrest, torture, detain and extort money from the villagers, and elder said from Maungdaw preferring not to be named.
