The windshield of an auto-rickshaw was broken by firing from Myanmar in the Naikshyongchari border area of Bandarban. The incident took place in Tumbru Upazila’s North Para area around three o’clock on Saturday.

A member of the local union council confirmed the matter on condition of anonymity. He said that heavy shelling started across the border in Myanmar from 3:30 p.m. today. At that time a bullet hit the autorickshaw. However, no one was injured in this incident. Gunshots were heard till 4 pm. Due to the shelling, panic has been created among the residents of various villages of Bangladesh on the border. Abu Taher, an autorickshaw driver, said that he left the car and went to have tea. The moment he got back into the car, a bullet hit the glass of his autorickshaw. It damages the glass.

Some people’s representatives in Naikshyongchari said that the firing is going on between the rebel group Arkan Army and the Border Guard Police (BGP) in Myanmar. The area from where the gunshots are heard is the BGP’s Tumbru Right Camp and Dhekibaniya border post. Apart from these two installations, all the remaining posts of BGP in the border area of about 48 km have been taken over by the Arakan Army. Arakan Army is attacking there to capture the remaining two installations. From this morning, the activity of armed men was seen across the Bangladesh border.

Chairman of Ghumdhum Union Parishad (UP) Jahangir Aziz said that the sound of so much gunfire was never heard at those two border posts in Myanmar. This time the people of Bangladesh bordering Bangladesh have been asked to be careful as the sound of the gunshots is more intense.

Earlier, on January 29 and 31, two BGP installations were attacked. At that time, at least four parts of the mortar shells and shells exploded in Tumbru, Konarpara and Paschim Ghumdhum in Bangladesh. Then Deputy Commissioner Shah Mojahid Uddin and Superintendent of Police Saikat Shahin Ghumdhum visited the border.

Deputy Commissioner Shah Mojahid Uddin said that the chaotic situation is going on in Rakhine State. Very naturally, there may be shelling in the border areas as well. In this situation, BGB, police and security forces are on alert at the border to face any situation.
