An elderly man in the Unchi Prang refugee camp of Bangladesh attempted suicide after hearing that he and his family will be forcefully sent back to Myanmar.
Dil Mohammed drank bleaching powder after he was told that he and his family were on the repatriation list to Myanmar.
While most Rohingyas want to return to their homeland, they insist that under the current administration they will face torture and even death.
Dil Mohommed was rushed to the hospital by Bangladesh authorities. He is currently in a critical condition.
Another family in the same refugee camp supposedly on the repatriation list has reportedly escaped their homes, according to a source.
Our correspondent says the smoke over repatriation is creating panic among the Rohingya refugees and leading to a misunderstanding with the Bangladesh administration with vested quarters trying to stoke tensions.
Bangladesh has repeatedly said they will not force Rohingyas to go back unless there is security for the Muslim community in Rakhine (Arakan) state.
However, a deal to repatriate Rohingyas has struck terror, with some NGOs and community leaders telling refugees they will be forcefully sent back.
Meanwhile, State Counselor Aung Saan Suu Kyi continues to blame Bangladesh for delaying the repatriation of Rohingya refugees.
Human rights organisations and international analysts say that sending Rohingyas back to Myanmar at this moment is not feasible.
