Police went to the house of a murdered man on Tuesday and threatened family members with dire consequences if they pursued the case any further.
Abdul Amin from Cinghali, Rathedaung was killed on June 7 when he went to a nearby Rakhine village to collect payment. The next day, police told his family members that Amin was killed in an accident. This was despite the fact that seven machete wounds were found on his body.
But as pictures of the deceased (see above) circulated in social media, police got furious. On Tuesday, a big team of policemen entered Cinghali and went to the house of the deceased man. Here they threatened family members with dire consequences if they pursued the case anymore.
This time the police are saying that Amin was killed when he tried to steal from a Rakhine village.
The incident follows the murder of another Rohingya man in nearby Muzair. Md Yaqub was killed by Rakhine miscreants as he went to fish in the night.
