An ethnic villager of Maungdaw township in western Burma received a sword injury during an attack of miscreants as he was looking for missing cattle, said a local village leader.
U Maung Aye Cho (50 years old), who faced the attack, hails from Shwe Baho village in northern Maungdaw Township, while he along with his colleagues was looking for his missing cattle near the mountain area.
“I believe the attackers are members of the notorious terrorist group ARSA. There were four people who attacked him with swords. But luckily, he could escape with injuries,” added the villager leader.
According to the villagers, some of Maung Aye Cho’s cattle went missing a few days back.
Fortunately, his injury was not serious and now he is recovering from injuries at his village residence.
The family has complained to the authorities of United League of Arakan (ULA), a political wing of Arakan Army (AA) about the incident.
The western Burma border area is close to Bangladesh and it often witnesses similar incidents. The villagers remain worried because of the unsafe ambience.
