Bangladesh Army will install barbed wire fences around Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar to ensure security. The government has announced that people will be barred from unnecessarily visiting Bhashan Char. However, NGO workers or other officials who work there will not come under the purview of the decision.
Additionally, the Bangladesh Army will install barbed wire fences around the Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar to ensure that refugees do not leave their camp and join the local community.
The decisions were taken at a meeting of the national committee for coordinating, managing and maintaining law and order of Rohingyas on Wednesday at the secretariat.
Following the meeting, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said: “We have noticed that some curious people have started visiting Bhashan Char. I would like to announce through you [journalists] that such curious people have to refrain from going to Bhashan Char.”

The government recently shifted two batches of Rohingya refugees to Bhashan Char. More Rohingyas will be shifted to the island gradually.
