Unknown assailants have murdered Md Sultan, the Aishwaramu of the Kiladong village tract on Saturday.
Just before the dawn prayers, a group of men forced their way into Sultan’s house. Locals also say that a muffled gunshot was heard during this time.
Later on after the attackers had left, locals found the blood stained body of Sultan.
Police have taken his body for post mortem.
Kiladong is of course infamous for the massacre of January 2014 when scores of Rohingya Muslims, especially women and children were killed by a Rakhine mob backed by security forces. At that time, Sultan guided the killers.
In the aftermath of the massacre when government cracked down on survivors, Sultan once again helped the authorities against Rohingya Muslims.
Sultan is also notorious for sexual harassment of Muslim women. For more information, please see http://burmatimes.net/muslim-women-sexually-abused-in-kiladong-after-relative-escapes-police/
Meanwhile the atmosphere in Kiladong remains tense as a heavy-handed government response is anticipated. Sultan is one of the leading government collaborators of the area.
