A Muslim boy was hacked with sharp weapons as he went to collect wood near Phulbari, Kyuaktaw.
On Wednesday, Bodia (13) s/o Siddique went to the nearby hills. There some Rakhine men hacked at him with machetes in the head. He was left unconscious in the hills.
Later some of his friends rescued him and bought him back to the village.
Locals say that they have not admitted to the hospital as they fear hospital staff will murder him.
The murder of pregnant women in hospital has discouraged Muslim patients from seeking medical treatment.
Sources say that authorities are cracking down on fishing in the rivers and collecting wood in the hills to prevent Rohingya Muslims from their last sources of livelihood.
