Locals robbed six Rohingya refugees before handing them over to Bangladesh Border Guards in Lamba Bil.
The four women and two men tried to enter Bangladesh territory at around 8am on Friday. During the robbery the men were also assaulted.
Locals have been patrolling the Bangladesh Burma border along with Bangladesh Border Guards for the past few days to prevent entry of Rohingya Muslims. The initiative came after officials requested participation of local civilians on the grounds that their forces were undermanned to prevent entry of Rohingya refugees.
