Kaokhali Jummas protest killing of Jharna Dewan on 30th March

Jumma villagers staged a demonstration in Kaokhali on 30th March in protest at the killing of Jharna Dewan alias Dhurungyo by Bengali settlers.

About 500 Jummas took part in the protest, which was organised under the banner of the Residents of Kaokhali. They marched from Talukder Para to Kaokhali College.

However, the demonstrators were intercepted by police at College area and were refused to march through Kaokhali market place.

UPDF leaders Charan Singh Tanchangya and Pulok Chakma addressed the rally of the demonstrators, condemning the killing of Jharna Dewan.

They urged the administration to arrest Idris Ali and Kashem, the suspected murderers.

The deceased’s husband Alo Joti Dewan filed a criminal case against these two settlers.

Ms Jharna Dewan (33), a resident of Talukder Para, was killed while collecting firewood in a nearby jungle adjacent to a settler village.

She is believed to have been murdered over a dispute over a piece of land with Idris Ali and Kashem.
