M M Jasim :
The injured Rohingyas mostly bullet-hit are coming to Chittagong Medical College Hospital (CMCH) for treatment with the increasing the number of the wound Rohingyas day by day.
A total of 105 Rohingyas have been admitted to CMCH for treatment since fresh violence broke out in Myanmar on August 25. Of them two have already died. Many others are fighting for life.
Azizul Hoque, a 15-year old boy, lost his two legs as landmine exploded when he was crossing the border. His mother Rushida Hoque carried the injured boy, who has lost two legs and also sustained injuries in different parts, entered Bangladesh. Later Azizul was admitted to CHCH with a little hope of recovery.
The injured Rohingya Muslims alleged that the Myanmar security forces across the Rakhaine State fired on them which caused severe injuries including losing their prime organs.
They were the victims of violence unleashed by Myanmar security forces in a bid to force them out of their homeland, the injured Rohingyas said.
'I fell to the ground when the bullet hit my leg. Some of the fleeing villagers died on the spot. But I was carried to Teknaf by members of my family,' Sixty-five-year old Bashir Ullah said.
Forty-seven-year-old Abdul Gani said, Myanmar army have done everything including killing and bombing on us to oust us from Rakhaine State.
"The army hit my leg with gun butt and boot on August 28. My right leg was badly injured. Then I was carried secretly to Teknaf by locals and from there I came to CMCH. I am getting treatment here now. The doctors in the hospital are very cordial. I am happy over their treatment," he said.
Senior Neuro-Surgeon of CMCH Dr Kamal Uddin, "We are trying to provide them highest treatment. We are under tremendous pressure as we need to treat a huge number of local patients too."
The injured Rohingya Muslims on Tuesday said that they were victims of violence unleashed by Myanmar security forces across the Rakhaine State in a bid to force them out of their homeland.
On Tuesday, five bullet-hit Rohingyas have been admitted at CHCH. Five also, including four with gunshot wounds, have been brought to the CMCH on Monday.
Twelve more bullet wounded Rohingyas fleeing the military crackdown in Myanmar's Rakhine state were admitted to Chittagong Medical College Hospital between Saturday night and Sunday morning for treatment.
CMCH Police Camp's ASI Alauddin Talukdar said, "The injured took primary treatment at Medecins Sans Frontieres, an international humanitarian organisation, in Cox's Bazar. Later, they were shifted to CMCH, he added.
