The law enforcers, if needed, should fire bullets to stop the rampant drugs and arms trade at the camps, Dr Momen says

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has urged the local authorities and law enforcement agencies to take firm action to improve law and order at Rohingya camps.

He said that the law enforcers, if needed, should fire bullets to stop the rampant drugs and arms trade at the camps.

The minister was speaking at an event organized at the National Heart Foundation in Sylhet on Friday.

Dr Momen said: “We had a meeting yesterday (Thursday) to find out how to improve the law and order at the camps. This is very concerning. 

"Many of them [Rohingya] do not want to go back to Myanmar, and that is why they are involved in various misconducts. I don’t know for sure, but we need to know,” he added.

On early Friday, at least six people were killed in an attack by a group of unidentified miscreants at Block H-52 of Camp No 18 at Ukhiya upazila in Cox’s Bazar.

Attacks, clashes, and shooting incidents have been reported several times in the past from the refugee camps, which the law enforcers claimed were perpetrated by "Rohingya robbers" or "smugglers".

The law and order situation in the Rohingya camps came under international spotlight following the killing of Rohingya leader Md Mohib Ullah last month.

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan said earlier this month that arms are coming from Myanmar in a bid to create "instability" in the Rohingya camps in Cox's Bazar.
