Earlier that day four Rohingya were taken as forced labor from another village and they were returned on that evening after making them work the entire day without any payment.

Currently, due to the forced labor on men, Rohingya worry for their future as they might be shielded against their war with AA in the region.

Earlier many Rohingya were taken as porters and were used as a human shield. Many were also killed or disappeared in this process.

Now due to the situation, Rohingya are also becoming prey of the Arakan Army, as they might think Rohingya are in collaboration with Burmese military in their ongoing regional war.
