Rohingyas organized human chains in isolation on completion of four years of asylum in Bangladesh, despite the ban on any kind of gathering at the camp

Despite the ban on any kinds of gatherings at the Rohingya camps in Cox's Bazar, Rohingyas on Wednesday organized human chains in isolation on completion of four years of asylum in Bangladesh. 

They also held prayer meetings at mosques in Ukhia and Teknaf camps. The programs were arranged to mark the fourth anniversary of their escape from Myanmar to Bangladesh. A large number of law enforcement officials have been deployed at the camps to maintain security.

Multiple sources at the camps confirmed that prayers were held at mosques after the Fajr prayers. In some areas, Rohingya children and women waved placards at separate human chains.

In the wake of the human chains, Armed Police Battalion (APBn) and police patrols have intensified throughout the camps. 

Apart from APBn, members of district police, RAB and intelligence agencies have been active at the 34 Rohingya camps in Ukhia and Teknaf upazilas of Cox's Bazar since Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, a human chain was formed in front of the Cox's Bazar Deputy Commissioner's Office under the banner of Cox's Bazar Rohingya Prevention Committee on Wednesday morning, demanding the immediate repatriation of Rohingyas. 

Speakers at the human chain said clashes with locals were increasing in Cox's Bazar due to the large number of Rohingyas living there. They alleged the Rohingyas were involved in various crimes, including drug trafficking, murder and kidnapping.
