Detective Branch (DB) of police on Monday arrested two suspected members of Mogh Bahini, a terror outfit, from Bandarban’s Rowangchhari upazila.
The DB identified the arrestees as Mya Kyaw Thoai, 23, a citizen of Myanmar, and Mong Kyaw Ching Marma, from remote Chhotomadok area in Bandarban’s Thanchi upazila.
SI Jainul Abedin of DB in Bandarban said they also confiscated 2,000 pieces of yaba tablets from the possession of the arrestees.
Five indigenous people were killed and one abducted in Bandarban and Rangamati in the last one month. Locals and many family members of the victims have been blaming Mogh Bahini for the killings.
On May 30, law enforcers arrested three members of Mogh Bahini from Bandarban’s Ruma upazila.
Meanwhile, Kwe Shwe Hla, president of Awami League’s (AL) Bandarban unit, filed a general diary with Bandarban Sadar Police Station as his name was being circulated for the last few weeks in the social media as a sponsor of Mogh Bahini.
Since the 11th parliamentary elections, some AL men, assisted by some law enforcers, have been sheltering the criminals, locally known as Mogh Bahini, to ruin harmony in the region, claimed Uchow Mong Marma, president of Bandarban unit of Parbatya Chattogram Jana Samhati Samity (PCJSS).
