The Army HQ has promised to give exemplary punishment if the accusation against the soldiers is proved

The Army Headquarters (HQ) has formed a high-level probe committee to investigate the raping of a teenage Rohingya girl by army troopers at the Nayapara refugee camp of Cox's Bazar.

The Army HQ took the allegation very seriously, said a press statement by Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Saturday.

"The Army HQ has promised to give exemplary punishment if the accusation against the soldiers is proved," read the ISPR release.

Moreover, the camp authorities said they understood the seriousness of the situation and were observing everything diligently.

"Following the probe committee, a case was also filed as the incident is a criminal offense," said the Chief of the state-run Refugee Relief and Repatriation Commission Mahbub Alam Talukdar.

Earlier, the alleged victim's family accused three members of an army patrolling team of raping their 12-year-old girl by barging into their shanty on September 29.

Following the incident, the victim was initially treated at the camp medical centre, and later shifted to the Cox’s Bazar Sadar Hospital, said a Rohingya leader who preferred to go unnamed.

The family said they fear for the security of the girl, and in need of more medical care.
