As drugs and arms pour in, Rohingya camps see a rise in crimes

Published: 13 Oct 2021
As the sun sets on Bangladesh's south coast, a sense of foreboding fills the air as the dark underbelly of the Rohingya refugee settlements gradually comes to the fore.
 
 
Men with arms and weapons, that had hitherto been stowed away, begin to emerge from the shadows, while drugs are used in plain view.

The inhabitants are accustomed to such scenes and even a murder would do little to unsettle them.

The killing of Mohammad Mohib Ullah, a prominent community leader who campaigned for the Rohingya's safe repatriation, however, brought the issue of security and crimes in the camps into sharp focus both at home and abroad.

A group of unidentified gunmen killed him at Lombashiya refugee camp in Cox's Bazar's Ukhiya on Sept 28.

Local and national NGOs, civil society groups and journalists have called upon the government to launch a wide-range of awareness campaigns on coronavirus in the Rohingya camps in Cox's Bazar.

They also called for lifting the restrictions on using mobile phones and internet and resume 4G facilities at the camps in Ukhiya and Teknaf.

Speakers at a virtual press conference organised by the Cox's Bazar CSO NGO Forum (CCNF) today said this, adding that the Rohingyas are more vulnerable to Covid-19 infection because about 1.1 million refugees are living in a congested environment in Ukhiya and Teknaf.

Displaced community's vulnerable conditions breeding ground for infections

He, however, is worried about what lays in store for him and nearly a million other Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The virus, which has killed nearly 5,000 people in 118 countries and territories, reached Bangladesh last week.

Although only three COVID-19 cases have so far been confirmed in the Muslim-majority South Asian nation, refugees in the southern Cox's Bazar district are distressed.
