Two women along with their three infants were robbed at the Bangladesh border, according to our correspondent.
The women crossed into Bangladesh territory for medical treatment on Tuesday. They were robbed soon after that at Hansa para.
Rohingya Muslims are barred from medical treatment in the Arakan state. Many Rohingyas who have gone to hospitals have been abused by Rakhine medical staff and some pregnant women have been killed. So many Rohingyas, especially women avoid the local hospitals at all costs.
However medical refugees to Bangladesh face a hard and difficult journey.
The two women who strove so hard to get into Bangladesh now have no money for medical treatment.
