Myanmar ‘rebel’ sent to jail
A suspected member of Myanmarese rebel group Arakan Army, who was detained yesterday during a combing operation in Rangamati, has been sent to jail.
A Rangamati court passed the order after police produced Myanmar national Aung Nu Young, 25, before it, said Wahidullah Sarker, officer-in-charge of Rajasthali Police Station.
He was captured at a house near Nayajhiri College in a remote area in Rajasthali upazila, reports our Bandarban correspondent.
The operation was launched in Chittagong Hill Tracts around 10:00pm on Wednesday hours after the rebel group attacked a BGB camp in Bandarban that left one soldier injured, according to Border Guard Bangladesh sources.
The “rebel” was arrested from a room of the two-storey house of Ranaiju Rakhine. Police suspect that Ranaiju might have links with Arakan Army.
The OC said in a primary interrogation Young said he was from Myanmar.
