Police arrested and tortured a Rohingya man on Tuesday night at Ang Dhang in Maungdaw South for giving food to fighters.
Nagu s/o Dolu Hossain was cooking food at late night when a police team came to his house. They said that since he is cooking food so late at night, he must be feeding ‘terrorists’.
The police then too him to a nearby camp and tortured him without break for two hours. His helpless family fearing the worst paid the police 300,000 kyats to release him.
Torture in custody is increasingly common in Arakan. Scores of Muslims have died in custody since the riots of 2012.
