At least 46 families of Rohingya from northern Rakhine (Arakan) who lived at no man’s land of Naikhonchury in Bandorban have been shifted to Kutupalong camps of Ukhiya in Cox’s Bazar today, January 14.
On 14 January (Sunday) at around 7:00 am, 199 Rohingya members consisting of 46 families have been shifted for the second phase to the Kutupalong permanent camps of Ukhiya from Shapmaraziri of Asartoli in Naikhonchury.
Those Rohingyas were relocated from Naikhonchury to Kutupalong camp of Ukhiya led by Deputy Secretary, Mohamed Shamsuzzuha of Refugee Relief and Repatriation Commissioner (RRRC) office, Cox’s Bazar.
He said, tents, tube-wells, toilet including other necessary things have been arranged in Kutupalong camps for the Rohingyas who have fled to Bangladesh.
Approximately 3,000 Rohingyas have recently been moved to Kutupalong camp from zero point of GunDum area in which the Red Crescent and Red Cross cooperated over all.
The Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) S.M Sarwar Kamal said, the Rohingyas were shifted to Kutupalong camps from Naikhonchury area as per order and decision of government.
About 16,000 Rohingyas will be completely shifted to Kutupalong camps from Shapmarziri, Borosankhola, Bahirmat and Kunarpara no man’s land within 20 next days.
But another source said, this shifting process of the Rohingyas was out of knowledge of the administration. In this regard, co-operation from all sectors is necessary.
