Miscreants robbed humanitarian aid meant for Rohingya refugees in the Shaplapur area of Bangladesh.
On Thursday, some Arabs were giving aid to refugees in the area when a huge group of local men armed with sticks took away all the sacks of rice.
Altogether almost a tonne of rice were snatched by the miscreants.
The Arabs had earlier taken permission from Vice Chairman of the area’s brother Maulavi Aziz for distributing the relief. However locals say the miscreants, all local men are known to be working for Aziz.
During the robbery, the donors were threatened to come to a madrasa operated by Aziz. As the Arabs waited in the madrasa, the miscreants fell upon the group distributing aid at Master Monjur’s area in Shaplapur.
Another group seized some stacks stored at a warehouse near the bazar.
