He was a member of the Kutupalong camp in Ukhia
A Rohingya youth was stabbed dead by another member of the community at Kutupalong camp in Ukhia in Cox's Bazar.
The deceased was identified as Rahim Ullah, son of Abdus Salam of D block of the camp.
Ukhia police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Abul Mansur said Shahidullah and his associates stabbed Rahim following an altercation around 10pm on Sunday night, leaving him severely injured.
Other Rohingyas rescued Rahim and took him to a makeshift hospital at Kutupalong camp and then shifted him to Cox’s Bazar Sadar Hospital, where on-duty doctors declared him dead.
Rezaul Karim, in-charge of Kutupalong Rohingya camp, said he heard the incident, but does not know the details.
In the last two years, 43 Rohingyas were killed in internal conflicts of criminal gangs, while 32 others died in gunfights with security forces, said Police Superintendent (SI) of Cox’s Bazar ABM Masud Hossain.
Bangladesh is hosting over 1.1 million Rohingyas, most of whom entered the country since August 25, 2017.
The two countries signed a repatriation deal on November 23, 2017, but there has been little progress.
