A tabbe has extorted 250,000 kyats from a fisherman on false allegations of stealing in Firing Dong, Rathedaung.
On Thursday, Oli Miah (50) s/o Solim Ullah had a particularly lucky catch of fish in the river. But tabbe Baish Kutu alleged that Solim fished in his private pond and fined him.
Locals claim that a few days earlier, some Natala men had stolen fish from Baish Kutu’s pond. As he was unable to charge the Natala men, he has been on the watch to make up for his loss by extorting Rohingya fishermen.
