101 people of the country’s Border Guard Police (BGP) and army, who fled the ongoing conflict with the insurgent group Arakan Army in Bandarban’s Naikshyongchari border, have been transferred to Hnila in Teknaf.

They were taken to Hnila in Teknaf from Tumbru Government Primary School in Ghumdhum, Naikshyongchari on Thursday afternoon. Some officials of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) confirmed this information on condition of anonymity. 228 of those who escaped were sheltered at Tumbru Government School.

According to the BGB, the people fleeing from Myanmar have been shifted from Ghumdhum in Naikshyongchari to Hnila in Teknaf to facilitate their repatriation. In an inter-ministerial meeting in Dhaka yesterday, it was decided to send the fugitives back by sea. All repatriation activities are being conducted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Shipping back by sea may be most convenient from Teknaf’s point of view. For this, the members of various organizations including BGP, Army, Immigration and Police, who have sheltered Ghumdhum, have been transferred to one of the schools in Hnila.

Local residents of Ghumdhum Nayapara area said that three big BGB vehicles came to Tumbru Government Primary School area of Ghumdhum. 101 people were taken to Hnila in Teknaf in these vehicles.

According to BGB sources, there was a fierce battle between the BGP and the army with the insurgent Arakan Army of Rakhine State at the Tumbru Left Camp of the Myanmar Border Guard Police and the Dhekibaniya border post on the other side of the Ghumdhum border on Monday and Tuesday. The Arakan Army has captured two Myanmar government buildings. Earlier on February 4, the Arakan Army captured Tumbru Right Camp. Unable to survive the fight with the Arakan Army, 328 members of the BGP and various army organizations from three establishments fled to Ghumdhum and Ukhia in Naikshyongchari. Later two more escaped and that number stood at 330. Out of this 228 people were given shelter in Ghumdhum. They are being given all kinds of facilities including food and medical care.
