As a result of refusal of Bengali identity and proving Rohingya identities of 1974 by Rohingya villagers, a Rohingya graduate youth who spoke on behalf of his own family and urged the immigration authority to take a copy of his family’s Rohingya identity documents was beaten by immigration officer on 26 April.
The youths and children therefore gathered in the scene and chanted the word ‘Rohingya’. The authorities run away from the scene and came back with forces in the evening. But the family members have been on time disappeared. In the end, the immigration authority accused the acting Rohingya leaders for inciting and took away Mr. Sha-min and medicine shop owner Mr. Ali Ahmed. As per our confirmation, the they have been brutally beaten up and still detained in police custody.
Similar reactions of chanting the word ‘Rohingya’ were occurred in Bawdupa refugee camp on 26 April but the anti Rohingya mainstream media “Eleven Media Group” cunningly portrays as- “the Bengali riot in Bawdupa refugee camp”.
