Arakan militia abducted Myanmar soldiers to Bandarban?


Two ‘abducted’ Myanmar soldiers have been rescued from the Bandarban frontier, Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) has said.
BGB Director General (DG) Major General Aziz Ahmed told journalists, “ The Bangladesh Army and BGB have recovered two abducted members of the Myanmar Army after a relentless drive from July 5 to 14.”He, however, did not reveal who abducted them, when they were abducted or from where.
“They have been given medical treatment as they were found to be ill at the time they were rescued,” he said.
“They will be handed over soon.” He said the details would be revealed at a press briefing to be held later.
Myanmar’s Border Guard Police (BGP) abducted BGB Nayek Abdur Razzak after a shootout on the Naf River in Cox’s Bazar’s Teknaf on Jun 17.
Another BGB soldier had suffered bullet wounds in that skirmish. After eight days of captivity in Myanmar, Razzak was finally handed over to the BGB on June 25.
A BBC Bangla report said an Arakanese militia group had abducted the Myanmar Army’s Deputy Sergeant Naing Tun and Private Khin Lyat a few days ago.
Myanmar’s armed forces had learnt that they had been taken towards the Bangladesh border.
They also informed the Bangladesh authorities about the matter, the BBC Bangla report said.
