Akyab (Sittway), Arakan– Around 11:20 PM on 10th August 2013 night, Hlun Tin (Myanmar’s Security Force) kidnapped three displaced Rohingyas from the village of Baariza Fara (Ohn Daw Gyi), Akyab (Sittway). Nothing has been heard of them since then.
A local Rohinya witness reported the account as follows.
“At 11:20PM last night, Hlun Tin (Secuirty Force) abducted three Rohingyas who were trying to enter the village of Baariza Fara (Ohn Daw Gyi). Then, they were forced to strip off their clothes and to put on Hlun Tin uniforms. So, they were made to look similar to and take after Hlun Tin Force. Then, they were abducted without much notice of their fellow Rohingyas.
Taking some photographs of these three Rohingyas in uniform, Hlun Tin, then, took them to Set-Ro-Ja river nearby Ohn Daw Gyi. There, Hlun Tin handed them over to some Rakhine terrorists from the village of Paing-Lan-Pyin. The three Rohingyas are:
1) Hla Maung S/o Hussain Ahmed (Age-32)
2) Ismail S/o Yusuf (Age-42)
3) Abdul Hussain S/o Arno Meah (Age-21)
Afterwards that, we don’t know where they were taken to by the Rakhine terrorists. Till date, they have been out of contact. Nothing has been heard of them since then. We feel that they might probably killed by the Rakhine terrorists.”
Meanwhile, another Rohingya [from the camps of Baariza Fara (Ohn Daw Gyi)] died in Sittway government hospital around 4 O’ Clock on 11th August 2013 morning. He was, Jamal Hussain S/o Ezhar Meah (Age-50), one of those who got injured during the shoots out by the security in the camps of Badua Dayl (Baw Du Pha) and Barriza Fara (Ohn Daw Gyi).
