Arakanese Uprising 1811-1815

[ 1811 - 1815 ]

In 1811, the leader of the Rohingya insurgents, Chin Bya, organized his forces and managed to capture much of Arakan from the Burmese. A request by Chin Bya for British protection, however, was rejected and the Burmese army pushed Chin Bya back into Bengal. The incursions led to tension between the British colonial government in East Bengal and King Bodawpaya over the Burman king's demands for extradition of the insurgents. In one incident, the king's men pursued the Rohingya insurgents into British territory.
