Buthidaung, Arakan – A 17-year-old innocent Rohingya girl from Buthidaung Township of Arakan State was arbitrarily arrested and the police have raped her continuously since arrest. 

Over twenty police from Buthidaung police station raided Kyauk Hla Pyin village of Buthidaung Township on September 6th at 10:30 pm. They arrested the above mentioned 17-year-old Rohingya girl Ms. ------- and also three Rohingya men without any grounds for doing so. Reportedly, the police are keeping the Rohingya girl in separate room used for women held at the police station. 

RB News was informed the police stripped the girl and she is kept naked in her cell. They have been raping her since she was arrested. 

“They raided our village without any reason. As they usually do, to arrest and to extort the money. The Rohingya girl is the beautiful one in the village. That’s why they arrested her without any reason to do like the animals. They keep her naked inside the cell. And the police rape her continuously since she was arrested. She will die if this continues for another two or three days.” a Rohingya told RB News

Although the Township administrator, district police chief and state police chief are aware of these heinous acts yet, there has been no action taken to stop them. 

Two among three Rohingya men arrested together with the girl were released later after police extorted 200,000 kyats from each. A Rohingya man, Abu Sofian, son of Fawzaw Rahman is still under police custody and the two released are Zamir Hussein, son of Mamed Hussein and Mir Ahmed, son of Sultan Ahmed.
