A Rohingya refugee caused a scandal in Kutupalong, Bangladesh after he videotaped an illicit affair and uploaded it on the internet.
About three weeks, ago, a Rohingya woman from Taimbru, Maungdaw North crossed over to Bangladesh and settled in the Kutupalong refugee camp. Here she continued an earlier affair with a Rohingya man Abu Tayab (35) who runs a small medicine shop in Kutupalong.
On Tuesday, as they were in an intimate relationship in the back of the shop, another Rohingya refugee called Joynal videotaped the entire incident. Joynal runs a medicine shop adjacent to Tayab and he could video the entire incident from the creak of his wall.
As he showed the video to locals, they got furious and apprehended the couple. The police came and took them to Ukhiya station.
Later local strongman Bakhtiar Ahmed went to the police and arranged for their release. The couple were then dragged to the market.
Here Tayab was beaten with bricks till he fell unconscious. The woman was also assaulted and humiliated in public. The locals shouted racist insults against the Burmese.
They were later pushed back over the border into Arakan.
