Then with this group of 100 military he had to walk around villages the whole night.

In this journey he was also beaten inhumanely as he did not help them to target any Rohingya for thier usual arbitrary arrest.

The next morning his family had to pay 400,0000 kyats to the same group of military and the victim could not identify the battalion or rank no. of the military.

Money extortion has been one of the rooted genocidal tools in Arakan (Rakhine) since decades and till today Rohingya are paying the price of living on their own ancestral land.
