This is worth to mention that Sri Pragati was shot at his neck on 26 April 2009 at Rangamati town and a point 22 bullet was removed at Chittagong Medical College and Hospital the next day. Therefore, he sued a case against some youngsters of Santu Larma camp holding them responsible for the shooting.
