Rafiqul Islam, additional superintendent of police of the district of Cox’s Bazar, testified that a Rohingya was detained and firearms seized from him, the New Age Bangladesh website reported.

‘We found four bodies at the scene and the seven wounded Rohingya were sent to hospital,’ said an official from the Ukhiya town police precinct. Three of the injured Rohingya died in hospital, he went on to add.

The bodies of the deceased Rohingya bore marks of having been cut up while the four injured were in serious condition.

Police officials said two groups got into a clash over establishing supremacy in the refugee camps. The humanitarian crisis for the Rohingya forcibly displaced from Myanmar has lasted five years already.

The problem erupted in 2017 with the mass exodus of a million people from this minority group from the Rakhine province to Bangladesh after an ethnic cleansing carried out by the Myanmar authorities.
