85 wounded Rohingyas at CMCH
The number of Rohingya refugees receiving treatment at Chittagong Medical College Hospital (CMCH) with gunshot and burns has been getting longer with each passing day. As of Saturday night, a total of 85 Rohingyas, including women and children, came to CMCH to receive treatment. Of them, two have already succumbed to their injuries. The hospital records state that all the Rohingya patients sustained injuries while fleeing the ongoing crackdown by the Myanmar forces. On Saturday night, four Rohingyas – Sirajun Nesa, 28, Hossain Ali, 45, Mohammad Shaker, 27 and Mohammad Abdullah, 20 – were admitted to CMCH. Shaker was shot in the chest and hands while others had gunshot wounds on their legs. The four Rohingyas were referred to CMCH from a hospital of Medicine Sans Frontiers (MSF), for better treatment. Later at night nine more arrived, two women and seven men, and all but one of them had bullet injuries. CMCH Director Brig Gen Md Jalal Uddin told the Dhaka Tribune that most of the Rohingya patients admitted to the hospital had gunshot wounds. “We cannot discriminate among the patients. They are patients to us, and we are sparing no effort to provide them the best medical treatment,” he said. He also stated that some medicines were being provided to the Rohingya patients from the Patients' Welfare Fund of the hospital. Dr Mrinal Kanti Das, associate professor and in-charge of the Burn and Plastic Surgery Unit, said: “We are providing our best service to the Rohingya patients, although the number of beds at the unit is inadequate.”
