Border Guard Police personnel in Bandula village of Maungdaw North have assaulted a Rohingya cow boy while taking care of cattle in the lea beside a hill near the village on 11 January 2017.
Source said to our correspondent, a cow boy and a girl were both taking care of their cattle while grazing in the lea. There, the boy was shaking the branches of plum tree and the girl was collecting the plums under the tree.
Meanwhile, three policemen called the girl from a little distance but sensing the ill mood of the policemen, the girl ran away to escape gang rape and entered her village.
The police got angry as the girl ran away. But the boy who was shaking branches of the plum was caught as he could not flee away from the spot. The boy was brutally assaulted by the three police personnel to unconscious state.
The girl would be gang raped if she did not flee the spot before the police reached. Their full intention was to rape the girl but not to beat the boy. They tortured the boy because the girl ran away from the spot ignoring their call, said a villager.
The victims have been identified as – Muhibbullah (15) son of Mohamed Hussain and Senu Ara Begum (14) daughter of Abdu Munaf of the Bandullah (Amtola) of Northern Maungdaw.
The boy is now in critical condition following the severe violent assaults of police and he has no access to better treatment at this moment as there is no medical facility for locals fow which he may even die of it, source said.
