According to a respectable Rohingya of Shweza village, these types of brutal incident occur frequently on Rohingyas in Arakna state. The Rohingyas are killed like ants by the government of Burma and it is not a new incident for us in Arakan, state but the rates of killing has not been decreased yet anymore though the current government claims that the country is now a democratic peaceful country.##########
