The CHT Voice has received information of abduction of 5 Jumma civilians in 2 separate places. National and Chittagong based daily newspapers have confirmed the news. Reports claim that a pro-CHT Accord armed group abducted 3 Jumma civilians from Jurochari village yesterday at 02.00 hrs and 2 from Massalong bazar in Sajek Union of Baghaichari Upazila of Rangamati Hill District in the morning of 16th instant.
The Group led by Indu which camped at Sijak Dojor on 8th instant has moved towards north and has been staying at Bhuachari of Kassalong reserve area since 15th last. It is believed that the abduction of Massalong bazar has been conducted by this armed group as Massalong bazar is close from Bhuachari and there is no report of presence of any armed group except Indu’s one.
The pro-CHT Accord armed groups have been driven out by anti-CHT Accord armed groups from Jurochari Upazila and yesterday’s abduction is a fresh one after a silence of about 2 months.
The CHT Voice has gathered that a secret meeting was held on last Wednessday at Kalyanpur of Rangamati town between some commanders of pro-CHT Accord armed groups and a high profile over ground leader. It has also been gathered that another follow up meeting will be held at Rangamati very soon.
