Five people were arrested in connection to the killing of Rohingya leader Mohib Ullah at the Rohingya camp in Ukhia on Saturday


The killing incident of Rohingya leader Mohib Ullah will not have any impact on repatriation of Rohingya people to their homeland Myanmar, said Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen.

"Five persons have been arrested over the Mohib Ullah killing. The government is taking into account the incident with due importance," he told journalists at the Cox's Bazar airport after visiting the Kutupalong Rohingya camp at Ukhia in the district today.

Momen said they have talked with the family of Mohib Ullah and the government is also giving importance to providing security to the family. Any kind of irregularity in the camp will not be spared, he said.

The foreign secretary said different initiatives are underway for initiating the repatriation process while the United Nations also joined the process of shifting Rohingya people to Bhasan Char.

A four-member delegation of Foreign Ministry led by the foreign secretary visited Kutupalong Lambashia camp today. The delegation reached Cox's Bazar on Friday on a two-day visit.

They talked with slain Mohib Ullah's brother Habib Ullah. Besides, they also talked with other Rohingya people.

On September 29, Rohingya leader Mohib Ullah was shot dead by unidentified

assailants at Ukhia Rohingya camp in the district.
