Maungdaw, Arakan State: A Rohingya female with her three children’s dead bodies were found in Maungdaw town by police and Hluntin on September 4, said an eyewitness from Maungdaw on condition of anonymity.
“The dead bodies were not identified who they were as the local villagers were not allowed to see the dead bodies. Some of the Rohingya villagers had seen the dead bodies that were floating in the creek – it is old stream, the western side of old Rohingya graveyard- and on the western side of the Maungdaw foot-ball ground. Local villagers were not allowed to take the dead bodies.”
However, the police and Hluntin picked up the dead bodies by a truck and brought to unknown place to bury, said a local youth who saw the event.
Rohingya community becomes fowls in front of the government authorities and they (authorities) become foxes. Whenever, the foxes (authorities) want to arrest, rape and kill the fowls (Rohingyas), they are able for hunting easily to the Rohingya community by keeping them in the houses, said an elder from Arakan state.
“The concerned relatives of the victims are not able to know where are .the victims who were arrested by authorities, whether they were killed or jailed or detained. Rohingyas are dying like street dogs.”
