Rathedaung, Arakan State: The husband of a woman who gave birth to a stillborn baby on August 20, 2007 was fined by the Nasaka, Burma's Border Security Force.

The victim Abdu Radshid (30) husband of Momana Begum hails from Razar Bill village in Rathedaung Township, Arakan State, Burma, a relative said.

On August 20 Momana Begum, eight months pregnant, gave birth to a still born female baby at about 3 a.m. in her house.

At 6 a.m. a section of Nasaka from a nearby camp on patrol duty around Razar Bill village received the information of the still born.  Nasaka personnel Maung Oo Zaw led by two others went to Momana's house checked the house and found the still born.

The Nasaka accused Momana Begum's husband of strangulating the baby. They fined him Kyat 6,000 and two gallons of kerosene.

"How can a father strangle his own baby? It is an atrocious allegation all because they want money from the Rohingya people no matter by whatever means," a relative of the victim said.
