Court orders re-investigation of Kalpana Chakma abduction

Court orders re-investigation of Kalpana Chakma abduction

News No. 133/2010, September 03, 2010

THE court has ordered a re-investigation of the abduction of Kalpana
, a leader of Hill Women’s Federation.

Kalpana Chakma was kidnapped from her home in New Lallyaghona Village
under Baghaichari Upazila of Rangamati district on 12 June in 1996.

The Chief Judicial Magistrate of Rangamati District, Md. Shariful
Islam issued the order yesterday, Thursday, after Kalpana Chakma’s
brother Kalindi Kumar Chakma had rejected the final police report
filed with the court a few days ago.

Advocate Jewel Chakma, who was conducting the case on behalf on the
complainant, told Suprobhat Bangladesh, a Bengali daily published from
Chittagong: “As the final report on the abduction of Kalpana Chakma
was not accurate and as the investigation was not carried out in an
appropriate manner, we made an appeal for a re-investigation. The
court has taken cognizance of our appeal and ordered the CID to
re-investigate the case.”

The Hill Women’s Federation has welcomed the decision of the court and
urged the government to make sure that Kalpana Chakma’s abductors –
Lt. Ferdous and his accomplices – face justice.
