In the border area of ​​Ghumdhum Union of Naikxyongchari Upazila of Bandarban, panic is spreading everywhere due to the constant sound of bullets and mortar shells.

A resident of Tumbru area of ​​Ghumdhum Union. When talking to Abdullah, he told BanglaNews that Tumbru Right Camp border post in Myanmar is very close to the locality of Naikxyongchari Upazila in Bandarban, Bangladesh. Bangladesh locality is about 500 meters away from Dhekibania border post. Due to this, bullets and mortar shells hit the residences of Bangladesh during the shelling in Tumbru Right Camp.

He also said that for the past few days there has been a lot of firing across the border and all our family members have left their homes due to the fear of firing.

Md. has been living near the border of Tumbru area for 20 years. Akhtar told BanglaNews that I have left the whole family in the shelter. Cows and goats will be stolen from the house during the day, so I am guarding. And in the evening I went to a distant relative’s house.

Chairman of Ghumdhum Union Parishad. Jahangir Aziz said that the border situation is deteriorating day by day. Inside Myanmar, the shooting is sometimes continuous and intermittent. And the bullets and mortar shells from the other side killed some of my Union and wounded a few.

He said, since Tuesday (February 6) afternoon, about a hundred people of Ghumdhum, Tumbru and Konapara have taken shelter in shelters.

It is feared that the situation on the Ghumdhum-Tumbru border may get worse around this border conflict, so the Deputy Commissioner of Bandarban Shah Mojahid Uddin has ordered the evacuation of 240 families of the Naikshyongchari border of Bandarban to shelters.

During this time, he requested the journalists to be more careful and present the news at any point of the border and collect news from a distance from the exploded and unexploded firearms.

Bandarban Superintendent of Police Saikat Shaheen was with him at that time.

When reporters asked him about the border issue, Superintendent of Police Saikat Shaheen said that all the law and order forces, including the district administration, are working together.
