DHAKA: Eight people have been killed so far in an armed clash between two groups at a 6,000-acre Rohingya refugee camp in southern Bangladesh, while 12 people have been arrested for kidnapping, firing and arson.
It should be noted that reports of the presence of criminal gangs in the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh have been circulating for the past two years. In addition to drug trafficking, these groups are also involved in robberies and kidnappings.
Covering 30,000 settlements and 6,000 acres, the Rohingya refugee camp consists of temporary houses made of bamboo and tin, sheltering more than 100,000 people. It also has the status of the largest refugee camp in the world.
