Maungdaw: Burmese Immigration arrested a guiltless Rohingya in their illegal checks on Rohingya villages in Maungdaw Township on 12th December 2017 reports victims.
Since early morning Immigration department along with Military, Police and Border Guard Police (BGP) arrived in Burashiddafara (Oo Kya Kar) village and initiated illegal checks on Rohingya houses. In their illegal activity on baseless allegations they arrested a Rohingya Named to Robi Alam S/O Kuilla Mia, 32.
Immediately after his arrest his parents begged the Authorities and pleaded to free their innocent son. But Brutal Authorities did not care and mercilessly took him to the military camp in Nappura (Nga Ku ra) village.
According to villagers he was an honest man and local people elected him to be the new village admin. But the ex-village administrator is a sycophant who falsely claimed Rabi Alam to be a member of Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA). Following this false claim authorities got a ready made chance to arrest him, for which they are set free by the government. Arresting Rohingyas on daily basis are freaking out the lives of the innocent Rohingyas whom are trapped in inhumane life style created by the Government forces.
