Maungdaw, Arakan State:   A Hindu girl was severely beaten up by a Burma's border security force personnel on November 20, after she came out of her home in the evening in Maungdaw Township, Arakan State, Burma, said a friend of her father.

The victim was identified as Dorgoni (17) daughter of Bandiya, hailing from Bawli Bazaar village in Maungdaw Township.

On November 20, at about 6 pm, she dressed up and was walking in front of her home in the evening. A Nasaka personnel saw her and teased her. It made her angry and she scolded him holding up a slipper. The Nasaka personnel beat her up severely. A Nasaka camp is located about a furlong from her house.

On receiving information, some Nasaka personnel rushed to the spot and took her to the Nasaka camp and then sent her to Bawli Bazaar clinic for treatment. Two days later after treatment, she was released from the clinic on the orders of Nasaka, a close relative of the victim said.

Nasaka was afraid that if the patient stayed for long in the clinic, the case would become more complicated so it ordered the doctor to release her quickly, said a local elder.

The patient has not fully recovered yet and is being treated out side. A case was filed against the culprit in the police Station of Bawli Bazaar, said a family member.
