In absence of Raja Devasish Roy and other members of Chakma Raj family the Chakma Rajbari was destroyed by fire at around 7.15pm of 10th instant . The actual cause is still unknown, some say it is by balloon lantern while some say it is by electricity short circuit. But, it is fact that all the valuables and rare documents have been engulfed by fire.
This Rajbari was constructed by Raja Tridiv Roy, father of Raja Devasish Roy in 1960 when the earlier palace went under water due to commissioning of Kaptai dam. It has been learnt that Raja Devasish Roy is in Thailand. Local authorities have rushed to Rajdwip and offered helping hands in the crisis.
