BGP men have heavily assaulted five Rohingya Muslims, including four children last Sunday, according to our correspondent.
At around 10 pm, seven soldiers of the 550 battalion came to Koodan Kauk, Rathidaung under the influence of alcohol. There they found a Rohingya night guard Sabbir Ahmed (s/o Izhar Miah) wrapped in blankets in the company of his four children.
The BGP then told him why he is dozing in a blanket and playing with his children when he should be on alert duty. They then started assaulting all of them including the children.
They then took two chickens from the household leaving the Rohingyas bleeding on the ground.
Rohingya night guards are chosen arbitrarily by a local tabbe in coordination with authorities.
