Four bodies of Rohingyas recovered from Kutupalong camp



Cox’s Bazar 20: A day after Thursday’s violent clash, a joint force of BDR (Bangladesh Riffle), police and ansars recovered four bodies of Rohingyas and arrested 12 more people from Kutupalong camp in Ukhiya Thana on Friday, according to the several local news papers.


The joint force cordoned off the camp overnight from 2am and recovered four bodies including one woman at 9am. The dead were identified as Saber Ahmed 24, Achia Khatun 30 (woman), Saleh Ahmed 50, and Ehsanullah 22.


“The four might have been killed in Thursday’s cross fire”, the police said. Pourashava authorities buried the bodies after conducting their postmortem.


Police also nabbed 12 Rohingyas from the camp, raising the number of arrested to 22 in two days.


BDR and police patrols have been stepped up in the area to avert further violence.


Over 100 Muslim Rohingyas and law-enforcers were injured in Thursday’s violent clashes at Kutupalong refugee camp after the “Rohingyas terrorists” confined a police officer.


Since 1992, 236,460 Rohingyas refugees, who are Muslims, were repatriated. They had fled to Bangladesh 1991 to escape repression by the Burma military junta.


At present, 19841 officially recognized Rohingya refugees of 2,976 families are staying in two camps-Nayapara camps in Teknaf Thana and Kutupalong camp of Ukhiya under the Cox’sbazar district.


But there are about 200,000 ‘unofficially estimated’ refugees in Cox’sbazar district, the report said. #
