October 25, 2016
Maungdaw, Arakan – Three Rohingya married women from Kyi Gan Pyin and Ngan Chaung village tracts were raped by the Myanmar Army and Border Guard Police today.
Maw Too Fara is a sub-hamlet at West hamlet in Kyi Gan Pyin village tract where 60 houses and some 400 Rohingyas reside. Today, October 25th, 2016 at 11:30am, three BGP police came to the village and raided the house of one 45 year old man and they tried to rape his 18 year old daughter. Fortunately, she could escape even she was caught by them originally. As their plans with the girl failed, they looted a solar panel and a battery. They then raided the house of Mr Bawdi Alom s/o Mamed Husson (38-year-old). They looted a solar panel and a battery from Mr Bawdi Alom’s house as well.
Then three BGP police raided the house of a 26-year-old man and his family. They pulled out the couple from inside. Then they pulled the family from another house and gathered all of them in one place. After gathering them, two BGP police kept the group at gunpoint while the remaining BGP pulled the wife of The 26 year old man into the house and raped her inhumanely. They then left the village.
Similarly, two military soldiers raided the house of a 27 year old and a 25 year old man at 2pm today in Muu Rar Fara hamlet of Ngan Chaung village tract. They held the two men at gunpoint and kicked them out from the house. Then the soldiers raped the wives of two men and left from the place.
An elder from the village said the authorities are informed how the military and BGP are committing crimes against humanity under pretext of a clearance operation. Yet, the government takes action. So it is no doubt whether the crimes are allowed by the government.
As the dignity and safety of the victims are major concern, we left out their names.
