Three Jummas killed separate incidents

THREE members of the rival factions of the Jana Samhati Samiti were
killed in the last two days in Rangamati district.

Abhilash Chakma, a member of the Santu Larma faction of the Jana
Samhati Samiti, was gunned down on Friday at his home in Kalyanpur, at
the heart of Rangamati town.

His assailants could not be identified. JSS (Santu) blamed the
incident on UPDF. However, Mikel Chakma of the DYF, a front
organisation of the UPDF, categorically denied his party’s involvement
in the killing.

Another source said until his death Abhilash Chakma had maintained
regular contact with the local leaders of the UPDF and transmitted the
JSS secrets to them.

“The Santu men might have somehow learnt about it and got him
finished.” the source said.

In another incident on Saturday, 9 October, two members of the M. N.
Larma faction of the Jana Samhati Samiti popularly known as reformists
were reportedly killed in an armed encounter with its rival faction in
Pablakhali village under Khedarmara Union in Baghaichari Upazila.

The dead have been identified as Mihir Kanti Chakma (40) and Enjoy
Chakma (28), according to a report released by sheershanews.com.

Both the factions are yet to give any statement on the incident.
