A boy has died in mysterious circumstances in the Maungdaw government hospital on Saturday.
12 year Riaz, son of Abdul Malik was admitted to the hospital after getting serious pains in the stomach area last Wednesday. By Friday he was feeling better and family members asked the doctor to release him.
The doctor however said that he had stones in the urinary tract area and needed to be operated on. The next day, Riaz suddenly died.
Many Rohingya Muslim patients have been murdered by doctors and nurses in the hospitals of Arakan. As a result, Rohingyas generally avoid the medical institutions.
Family members allege that Riaz has also been poisoned to death by hospital staff.
