Horrific Tale of a Rescued Rohingya Child

Police rescued a Rohingya minor child from Muslimbagh residential area of Srimangal upazila on Sunday.

The rescued minor was identified as Jihadul Islam, 11, son of Jasim Uddin, fled from the Arakan state of Myanmar amid persecution.

Fazle Rabbi, sub-inspector of Srimangal Police Station said that, on secret information, a team of police officers raided Shamsul Haque’s house in the area around 4:00 pm and rescued Jihadul.

Later, he narrated his horrific experience with the police that his mother was slaughtered and father was gunned down by Myanmar army in front of him.

The army men also burned down their house.

Jihadul along with his three-year-old brother ran for their lives by crossing the border.

But they were not so fortunate as his beloved brother was severely injured in a mine explosion in the border regions.

He later had to leave his bother behind to save his own.

Jihadul along with 18/20 Rohingyas rode on a Sylhet-bound train from Chittagong.

At Feni Railway Station, police detained others except him from the train, Jihadul continued.

A train passenger took him to the house of Shamsul Haque as he was crying in the train, said the ill-fated.
