Myanmar Army again takes position along border

UNB

After a three-day interval, Myanmar Army again took position along Tambru border in Naikkhonchhari upazila of Bandarban district yesterday, creating panic among the Rohingyas who have taken shelter on no man's land, reports UNB from Cox’s Bazar. Confirming the incident, Lt Col ManjurulHasan of Border Guard Bangladesh 34 Battalion said, "The situation along the Tambru border point is now calm and the BGB members, deployed in the border area, are on alert. There's nothing to be panicked and the BGB is ready to tackle any situation." AKM Jahangir Aziz, chairman of Ghumdhum union, said members of Myanmar's Border Guard Police (BGP) were seen patrolling the area since Monday morning.

Contacted, BGB additional director general (operation) Brig Gen Mujibur Rahman said: "The situation is still calm and there's no problem along the Myanmar border."

He, however, said the fact is that the number of army deployed by Myanmar along Tambru border is higher than normal. "But, the situation is totally under our control."

Mujib said the situation remained cool since Friday's flag meeting with Myanmar's border force. "There's still nothing along the border to be worried about."

Another BGB official, wishing anonymity, said observing the movement of Myanmar Army they found that some of their teams are replacing others after sometimes instead of new deployment.

On Saturday, Myanmar removed its Army from the Tambru border following a flag meeting with BGB on Friday. Myanmar Army took position with heavy troops and artillery along the Bangladesh-Myanmar border from Thursday morning. A good number of Rohingyas gathered near the zero point of the border in the last one month where the members of BGP along with Myanmar Army were seen conducting various activities like installing barbed-wire fences and setting up advance technological surveillance equipment.
