13 Rohingya move in with a family in Feni
Thirteen Rohingya refugees, including seven children, have taken shelter in a man's house in Feni’s Sonagazi upazila. Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Minhajur Rahman confirmed the matter to the Dhaka Tribune. He said: "After being informed we visited Shirajur’s house in Dorbesh union on Tuesday morning where the Rohingya family took shelter. They are all Shirajur's relatives." “Almost all of them were suffering from different diseases, so we arranged for their medical treatment, and security," he added. Minhajur also said, one of the Rohingya, Zafar, is the brother of Shirajur’s wife. Shirajur, a Bangladeshi national, married a Rohingya woman seven years ago. While talking to the Dhaka Tribune, Zafar said sixteen of his family members have walked for 14 days straight from Myanmar’s Rakhine state to flee violence that began on August 25. However, only thirteen could come to Bangladesh on September 9. Zafar said: “We all set out to come to Bangladesh. My wife and I had our seven children with us. But one of my daughters was shot, another hacked to death and another went missing." "My house was burned down, I had no other option to save my children but to come here. We walked without respite for days just to save our lives," he added.
