Bangladesh Navy has rescued another Rohingya man who went missing as a trawler en route to Malaysia carrying Rohingyas capsized near Saint Martin's Island on Tuesday.

The man was rescued in a critical condition from Saint Martin's Island in Teknaf upazila of Cox's Bazar district around 7am on Wednesday.

Bangladesh Navy Saint Martin station Commander Lt SM Jahidul Islam said: "The rescued man was rushed to Saint Martin Hospital. As he is in critical condition, his identification could not be known immediately."

Members of Bangladesh Navy and Coast Guard are continuing the rescue work for the second day, he added.

On Tuesday, 15 Rohingyas died after the trawler capsized. The deceased includes 12 women and three children though their identities are yet to be confirmed. 

Till Tuesday night, 72 Rohingyas were rescued and given primary treatment.

The trawler, presumed to be carrying 138 people, sailed for Malaysia from the Noakalia Para coastal region under Teknaf upazila around 3am, and sank 3 nautical miles off the island in the Bay of Bengal later. 

Police have filed a case against 19 alleged brokers, both Bangladeshi and Rohingya, with Teknaf police station, said the station Officer-in- Charge (OC) Pradip Kumar Das.

The rescued others are kept in police custody awaiting orders from court, he added.
