Rela and Police Raid a Construction site and Arrested 25 Men

Butter Worth, Nov. 28—Police and Rela on November 28 at 4.90 PM entered into a construction site in Butter Worth. The police and Rela gathered 40 men in the site and kicked and bitten the men intensely. Then they checked IDs and passports from the workers.

Fifteen men from Bangladesh and Burma were released later since they held passports and UNHCR refugee cards. Other Burmese and Arakanese were arrested since they did have neither passports nor UNHCR cards.

An Arakanese man, 40, was severely injured after several Rela kicked him by military boots because he could not understand the police’s questions in Malaysian.
