A Rohingya woman was raped by BGP personal as she attempted to cross over to Burma from Bangladesh on Friday.
Our local correspondent says that two young religious scholars (maulavis) were taking the women to her home to Rathidaung from Shaplapur in Bangladesh for the census.
As they began their journey from Bangladesh, the boatmen kept all their money and belongings before dumping them near barbed wires on the Burmese border.
Then as they tried to cross the barbed wire, a BGP patrol intercepted them and asked them to halt. At this point, the maulavis panicked and ran leaving the woman behind.
The woman was then raped and assaulted by the BGP men.
BGP later handed the woman to a Rohingya Muslim settlement at Nagpura, Maungdaw.
