 The incident was reported from the upazila’s Ghumdum area Thursday night

A Rohingya man has been killed in a landmine explosion at the Bangladesh-Myanmar border in Naikhongchhari upazila of Cox’s Bazar.

The incident was reported from the upazila’s Ghumdum area Thursday night.

The deceased was identified as Hamid Hossain, 30, a resident of Ukhiya’s Kutupalong Camp 1.

According to the Rohingyas, locals recovered Hamid’s body from near the pillar 39 of the border when they heard the blast.

They added that two others were injured and were taken to Ukhiya Kutupalong MFS Hospital.

Naikhongchhari Ghumdhum police outpost in-charge Emon Chowdhury said he was aware of the death of a Rohingya man in a land mine explosion in the area. “We suspect the victim was trespassing back and forth across the border when the explosion occurred. The injured were transferred to Chittagong Medical College Hospital.”

Md Idris, a boatman from Ukhiya’s Kutupalong Camp 7, said: “Myanmar Border Guard Police (BGP) planted landmines along the Bangladesh-Myanmar border so that the Rohingyas who fled from Myanmar cannot return. Last night (Thursday), a man from my neighbouring camp died in a landmine explosion along the border. 

“The police were notified. However, it is not clear why he was at the border.”
