Govt allots 2,000 acres of forestland for Rohingyas
The Bangladesh government has allotted 2,000 acres of forestland in Cox’s Bazar to accommodate the Rohingyas arrived here fleeing the fresh spell of violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine state. Besides, initiative has been taken to make a biometric database of the Rohingyas. “The numbers of the Rohingyas are increasing everyday and they have taken shelter in different places. So, we have allotted the land to keep them in one place,” Shah Kamal, secretary of the Disaster Management and Relief Ministry, said while visiting Rohingya camps on Saturday. Khaled Mahmud, additional district magistrate of the district, said: “The Department of Immigration and Passports has been assigned to make a list of the Rohingyas with their names, photos and finger prints within short time.” According to Unites Nations estimation, more than 290,000 people are believed to have crossed the border from Myanmar to Bangladesh, tripling the Rohingya population in Cox's Bazar in two weeks.
