evacMaungdaw- A village administrator from Godusera, Maungdaw South was kidnapped and killed on Sunday.

Nurul Amin was kidnapped from his home shortly after the dawn prayers. Later at around 8am, locals discovered his corpse lying near a waterway a short distance from the village tract.

Nurul had injuries from sharp weapons to his stomach and his throat was cut. The victim is known as a pro government man and there are fears that his murder, though committed by unidentified assailants will lead to a crackdown in the village tract.

Though Godusera was relatively calm during the last crackdown, it is known as a hotspot for violence against Rohingyas.
