Four Rohingya Muslim men were assaulted and extorted by Rakhines and soldiers in Kunir Hali, Maungdaw North.
Mahadi (39) s/o Noor Alam, Nuru (34) s/o Halu, Syed Alam (20) s/o Noor Salam and Jomil Hossain (15) s/o Mahmudullah were alleged to be carrying Bangladesh SIM cards and keeping contacts with activists based in that country.
However no Bangladesh SIM cards were found in their possession.
A syndicate of local Rakhine men and soldiers regularly extort from the Muslim populace to fund their drinking and narcotics habits. The soldiers are acting on their own without orders from their officers.
