A Rohingya camp leader has been hacked to death by unknown assailants inside the Balukhali camp.


Around 7pm Monday, Arif Ullah, 35, the head majhi of block 11, Balukhali camp (2/2), was dragged down from an autobike, hacked with sharp weapons and then his throat was slit, said Ukhiya Police Station Officer-in-Charge Abul Khayer.


When refugees living in the area came out hearing the commotion, the assailants fled.


Arif Ullah was taken to Ukhiya Sadar Hospital, where he was declared dead.


The majhis are leaders designated by authorities to represent the refugees living in a certain part of the camp, often because of their knowledge of Bangla.


OC Abul said Arif had been the leader of the C11 block since the beginning of the recent Rohingya crisis.


The dead body will be sent to Cox's Bazar Sadar Hospital for autopsy.
