A Rohingya Muslim man has disappeared while in BGP custody. Relatives and acquaintances believe that he has been killed by the BGP.
Kadir Hussein, 54, of Attet-Kyuay-Cho-Maw village, Buthidaung Township, was arrested by the BGP on December 27. His arrest came after trumped up charges by a Rakhine man that he had stolen his cow. Sources on the ground say that there was no evidence to support this accusation.
Following arrest, Kadir was tortured in BGP custody that included being beaten with iron rods. A week later, the BGP claimed that he was being transferred to police custody. Since then there has been no information of his whereabouts.
Forced disappearances are very common in the Arakan state where the Rohingya Muslims are surviving in apartheid conditions persecuted by hostile Rakhines and security forces.
