Myanmar Army takes position along border again

After a three-day interval, Myanmar Army again took position along Tambru border in Naikkhonchhari upazila of Bandarban district today, creating panic among the Rohingyas who have taken shelter on no man's land.

Confirming the incident, Lt Col Manjurul Hasan of Border Guard Bangladesh 34 Battalion said, "The situation along the Tambru border point is now calm and the BGB members, deployed in the border area, are on alert. There's nothing to be panicked and the BGB is ready to tackle any situation."

AKM Jahangir Aziz, chairman of Ghumdhum union, said members of Myanmar's Border Guard Police (BGP) were seen patrolling the area since Monday morning.

On Saturday, Myanmar removed its Army from the Tambru border following a flag meeting with BGB on Friday.

Myanmar Army took position with heavy troops and artillery along the Bangladesh-Myanmar border from Thursday morning.

A good number of Rohingyas gathered near the zero point of the border in the last one month where the members of BGP along with Myanmar Army were seen conducting various activities like installing barbed-wire fences and setting up advance technological surveillance equipment.
