Disabled Rohingya youth shot dead in Ukhiya
A physically disabled Rohingya youth was killed in Cox’s Bazar’s Ukhiya Upazila on Sunday.
The victim, 35-year-old Md Asadullah, lived in Ukhiya’s Rohingya camp no. 20, as per bdnews24.com reports.
The incident happened around 10 pm on a bridge close to the camp.
According to Superintendent of Police Md Arefin Jewel, the deputy captain of APBn-14, at least 10 to 15 criminals entered the camp through the Lal Pahar road and took Asadullah to the bridge.
“The criminals fled the scene after hacking and shooting him to death,” said Jewel.
Asadullah’s body was later recovered and sent to the morgue for an autopsy report by Ukhiya police.
Initial reports suggest that Asadullah was killed for passing on information about the whereabouts of the criminals to the police.
“An investigation is ongoing to identify those involved in the murder,” said SP Jewel.
