They are suspected to be members of the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army, who Mohib Ullah’s family blamed for his death

Armed Police Battalion (APBn) detained five suspected Rohingya criminals in Ukhiya upazila of Cox’s Bazar in the early hours of Saturday.

The detainees Khaled Hossain, 33, Master Syed Amin, 38, Md Shaker, 35, Md Kalim, 18, and Md Ilias, 22, are residents of different Rohingya camps in Ukhiya. 

These men are suspected to be members of the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), said Naimul Haque, commander of the 14th APBn.

According to sources, a special APBn team conducted drives at several Ukhiya camps Friday night to maintain law and order in the wake of the killing of Rohingya leader Mohib Ullah.

“Five members of a criminal gang were detained on charges of extortion, murder, kidnapping, robbery, drug trafficking, and human trafficking,” said Naimul Haque.

The detainees have been handed over to the Ukhiya police station, he added.

A group of unidentified gunmen killed 48-year-old Mohib Ullah at a refugee camp in Cox's Bazar's Ukhiya on September 29.

Mohib Ullah was the chairman of moderate Rohingya group Arakan Rohingya Society for Peace and Human Rights and had come to be known as a "voice for the Rohingya" in the Western media.

Right after his death, his family said that the Rohingya community leader received death threats from the ARSA in recent months and at least eight men from the group took part in the attack.
