Teknaf, Arakan: A Rohingya woman trader was robbed by Bangladeshi at Teknaf, a border town of Bangladesh, said The Daily Azker Desh Bidesh.

The victim is identified as Rohima Khatoon, 40, of Maungdaw township of Arakan State, Burma. She is doing business sharing with a Bangladeshi named Faroque Ahamed Babul, a native of Teknaf town.

On 20th January 2006, she crossed Burma-Bangladesh border by legal way (i.e., taking passport numbered 2612) to meet Faroque to discuss about their business and to settle account.

After meeting Faroque, the lady managed to go to Teknaf market for marketing. While she was on her way market, Faroque and his 4 accomplices in the guise of immigration looted Tk. 250,000 from her.

This matter was raised to the Teknaf police station by the lady so that Faroque was arrested and brought to police station to be punished. According to the submitting of the event, he was just arrested.

But, Faroque has many followers as he is a leader of local Bangladesh National Party (BNP). On hearing the news of his arrest by police, his relative and followers immediately rushed to the police station and encircled it. Then they demanded the police to release the BNP leader Faroque at once without punishing any way.

At last, police was compelled to set free him without any condition.

But the matter of the lady was not solved, said a close relative of Rohima Khatoon.
