Earlier before torching down the market, the group of Mogh was spotted in the village with suspicious movements.

As night fell and people went to their homes, suddenly a huge fire arose from the market area.

As soon as the fire caught the market, Rohingya were seen rushing to the fire incident, but hardly they could save any of their goods.
