Security presence has suddenly been increased around Maungdaw town since Saturday.
Rohingya Muslims are being refused entry into the town. Some are being turned away even when they have permission to enter.
A few Rohingyas without permission have been severely beaten by the BGP. Under the state laws, Rohingyas must have permission to travel from one area to another.
The cause for this sudden vigilance is not known.
