Fleeing Rohingya refugees have reported suffering including killings, sexual assaults and arson on a large scale, according to Reuters.
Myanmar has denied almost all allegations, saying it waged a legitimate counter-insurgency operation. Myanmar security forces then began a scorched-earth campaign against Rohingya villages that the United Nations and human rights groups have called a campaign of ethnic cleansing.
According to the Rohingya Blogger, however, the individuals in the photos are the family members of the administrator of Taung Pyo Latya, the designated entry point for returning refugees.
"The five members of a family. came back to Taungpyoletwei town repatriation camp in Rakhine state this morning", said a statement posted to the Facebook page of the government's information committee.
Bangladesh and Myanmar agreed a repatriation plan in January but its start has been repeatedly delayed as both sides blame the other for lack of preparation.
The group described the announcement a "fake event", aimed at luring Rohingya refugees to return to Myanmar to live in camps.
The pictures also show the family - one man, two women and a young girl and boy - receiving controversial national verification cards, which Rohingya activists have rejected, saying they are a way to deny Rohingya people citizenship.
The website claimed after conducting its own investigation that family entered the border area, where the refugees are camped out, to try "persuade" other Rohingya families to return to Myanmar.
The move comes despite warnings from the United Nations and other rights groups that a mass repatriation of Rohingya would be premature, as Myanmar has yet to address the systematic legal discrimination and persecution the minority has faced for decades.
"UNHCR considers that conditions in Myanmar are not yet conducive for returns to be safe, dignified, and sustainable".
The Rohingya are reviled by many in the Buddhist-majority country, where they are branded as illegal "Bengali" immigrants from Bangladesh, despite their long roots in Rakhine state.
Many Rohingya refugees say they fear returning to a country where they saw their relatives murdered by soldiers and Buddhist vigilantes who drove them from their homes.
"Another practical measure would be to ease restrictions on movement for the internally displaced persons encamped in the central townships of Rakhine state, which would also help to build confidence among refugees in Bangladesh", it added.
Tens of thousands of Rohingya fled Myanmar by sea following an outbreak of sectarian violence in Rakhine in 2012. The latest confirmed departure took place on Thursday.
