Police in Bangladesh have arrested the brother of banned Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) leader Ataullah Abu Amar Jununi, whose outfit was involved in killing of community human rights activist at a refugee camp in Cox Bazar last September, officials said.

Md Shah Ali, a militant leader himself, was arrested by the Armed Police Battalion (APBn) and locally made weapons and drugs seized from him.

Cox's Bazar Superintendent, APBn Mohammad Naimul Haque told IANS that further details of the arrest will be announced later.

A group of ARSA gunmen killed Rohingya community leader Mohib Ullah, 48, at a refugee camp in Cox's Bazar's Ukhiya on September 29, 2021.

The Chairman of peace-loving Rohingya group Arakan Rohingya Society for Peace and Human Rights, Mohib Ullah had come to be known as a 'voice for the Rohingya' in the western media.

After his killing led to international outcry over the murder, Bangladesh law enforcers arrested five suspects, who were involved with the killing, in October 2021. Police continued conducting raids on the camps.

Rohingya refugees said the arrestees were all members of the banned ARSA, or the former Harakah al-Yaqin, active in northern Rakhine state of Myanmar and border areas of Bangladesh.

The five were arrested after raids at different Rohingya camps in Ukhiya and accused of extortion, murder, kidnapping, robbery, drug trafficking, human trafficking and assault on police.
