A Rohingya man has been arrested by Bangladesh police on Thursday, according to our correspondent.
Hashem Ahmed (35) s/o Sultan Ahmed is a well known human trafficker from Nayapara refugee camp.
Hashem is also known for his links to Camp-in-Charge Jalal Uddin. Sources say that Hashem has been under the protection of Jalal. However the CIC got called away recently as his father died, making it possible for police to locate and arrest the notorious human trafficker.
During winter season, many Rohingyas embark on a risky sea journey to Malaysia. However many die during the sea voyage and most are confined by the smugglers in Thailand till their familes ransom them.
