Human Rights Watch has urged the Bangladesh government to allow the United Nations (UN) to visit Bhasan Char to assess its condition.
 
Rohingyas protesting on the island were beaten with sticks and tree branches, according to Human Rights Watch.

Naval officers allegedly beat the refugees, including children, in retribution for their hunger strike beginning on September 21, 2020 to demand reunification with their families in the Cox’s Bazar refugee camps, HRW said on Thursday.
