Collaborator stabbed to death
Burma Times Correspondent: April 17, 2015
A tabbe has been killed by unknown assailants in Furma fara, Maungdaw North.
Syed Hossain (35), s/o Noor Alam was found at midnight on Wednesday with seven knife marks on his body.
By the time police took him to a medical centre in Maungdaw, he was dead.
In response police have charged around 20 Rohingya Muslim men with the murder.
All the men charged by the police are well reputed in the village for doing humanitarian work and their commitment to justice.
Locals fear a crackdown by security forces any time soon.
Rejoinder: An earlier version of the report wrongly mentioned the place as Nashafru. We apologise to readers for our mistake.
