ASK expresses concern over Myanmar troop deployment at Tambru
Rights watchdog Ain o Salish Kendra (ASK) has expressed grave concern over fresh troop deployment by Myanmar along the Tambru border, in Naikkhongchhari upazila of Bandarban, where thousands of Rohingya refugees are camped. In a media statement issued on Tuesday, ASK said Myanmar’s aggressive manoeuvres along the border in recent times is a part of a plot to completely wipe out the persecuted Rohingya people from Rakhine state. “Myanmar is bound to take back the displaced Rohingyas as per the recent repatriation agreement, but it is very concerning that Myanmar security forces are issuing warnings using loudspeakers and asking the refugees to leave the no man’s land,” the statement reads, urging the international community to take rigorous measures against Myanmar over the country’s aggressive behaviour along Bangladesh border. After a three-day interval, the Myanmar army once again took position along the Tambru border in Naikkhongchhari upazila of Bandarban on Monday, creating panic among the Rohingyas who have taken shelter in the no man’s land. Around 6,500 Rohingyas from different villages in Rakhine state have been stuck in the no man’s land along the Tambru border zero line since late August last year. They are also reportedly among the 8,032 named in the initial repatriation list, which the Bangladesh government handed over to Myanmar last month. More than 700,000 Rohingya refugees have crossed into Bangladesh since a military crackdown began in late August 2017, following an insurgent attack on police outposts in Rakhine. They joined more than 400,000 Rohingyas who were already living at refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar.
