Rohingya leader killed in Ukhiya camp
A Rohingya community leader was stabbed and shot dead at the Ukhiya refugee camp in Cox's Bazar last morning.
Ebadullah, 40, was a sub-majhi of Camp A9 under Camp 1W, said Inspector Arifur Rahman of Armed Police Battalion-14.
"Some 8-10 masked criminals chased Ebadullah and caught him at his house. They stabbed him indiscriminately and shot him. He was rushed to a nearby NGO-run hospital, where doctors declared him dead," the inspector said.
The reason behind the attack and the identity of the criminals still remain unknown, he said.
On June 17, another Rohingya leader was killed.
Noor Hossain Bhutto, 42, a sub-majhi of 9D block at camp-2 in Kutupalong, was believed to be murdered over previous enmity.
At least 48 Rohingyas, including 16 Majhis, 11 ARSA members and a volunteer were killed in clashes or gunfights in the last six months in Rohingya camps in Cox's Bazar.
