Sources said the trouble erupted at about 9:30am when police and ansars went to the camp to rescue a police officer, detained by some Rohingyas during his visit to the camp earlier in the morning.
Camp-in-charge Mohammad Nurul Alam Chowdhury along with police officer Mohammad Wahid visited the camp to inspect its latest condition after the Eid vacation.
Police said the two noticed that over 100 refugees were holding a meeting on a hilltop against their repatriation to Myanmar. They requested them to refrain from holding such meetings, which is illegal as per law of the land.
The irate refugees then held police officer Mohammad Wahid and beat him. The camp-in-charge somehow managed to escape. On information, police and ansars from nearby barracks rushed to the spot to rescue the police officer.
