Land grab attempt in Bogachari

Land grab attempt in Bogachari

THERE has been an attempt to grab land belonging to a Jumma villager
in Bogachari under Naniachar Upazila of Rangamati district.

A Bengali settler named Mozaffar, 65, son of Gofur Sheikh made the
attempt at 9am today.

The land was registered in 1976 – 77 in the name of Nonaram Chakma,
45, son of Tanu Ranjan Chakma of village Bogachari Suridas Para.

But Mozaffar claims he owns the land and tried to occupy it along with
turmeric plants Mr Chakma has grown on it.

However, the attempt was resisted by Jumma villagers.

At one stage, Naniachari Union Council chairman Panchanon Chakma
visited the spot and appealed to both sides to settle the issue

He took them to the Upazila Nirbahi Officer at Naniachar in the hope
that he would settle the issue after hearing both sides.

While Nonaram Chakma showed him documents pertaining to settlement of
the land in his favour, Mozaffar failed to produce any such document
in support of his claim.

Yet, the UNO refused to settle the issue, and said he would do so
after further spot verification.
