The incident happened infront of a Petrol Station, located at Kallayanpur of Rangamati Town.

It has been learnt that, today was the 23rd council of PCP, student wing of Parbattya Chattagram Jana Sanghati Samiti (PCJSS). Thousand of indigenous Jumma students from different parts of the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) came to Rangamati to attend the council.

After the council was over,  the students were board on different buses and were waiting to leave Rangamati town. At around 4 pm, some miscreants from a CNG-run auto-rickshaw threw grenades at one of the buses, which was about to leave for Kaptai (a sub-district of Rangamati). More than  15 students have been admitted to Rangamati Hospital. 6 severely injured students have been transferred to Chittagong Medical Hospital for better treatment.

  1. This is terrible. Please, can you tell me, is Parbattya Chattagram Jana Sanghati Samiti (PCJSS)a political organization of some sort? I am interested as I am trying to think about the motivation (other than killing Indigenous Peoples) behind this attack.
