Bangladesh police murder an indigenous Chakma Buddhist in Rangamati

On 8 Jan. 1989, Bangladesh police deliberately murder an indigenous Chakma labourer by a police van on Khagrachari-Rangamati Road. The driver, constable Abdul Mannan was driving the van having No. Chatta (N) 2711.

The police driver without warning with horn straight away drove on the innocent victim from behind. The act was done intentionally.

No action was taken against the police constable by Kotwali Police Station, Rangamati. No compensation was given to the victim's family. The victim is Mr. Ranga Mua Chakma (65) son of Mr. Naga Chakma of Sukarchari Kamarpara in Rangamati.

India was partitioned on the basis of religion in 1947. 98.5% of the CHT population was non-Muslim during the partition. The indigenous people of CHT opted to join either India or Burma. But Muslim League conspired with the Boundary Commission and illegally annexed CHT with East Pakistan in violation of the principle of partition. Successive Bangladesh governments have been sponsoring Muslim settlers from plain land to dilute the indigenous people of CHT.

Bangladesh army's role in CHT is to protect the Muslim settlers and carry out massacre, extra-judicial killing, torture, detention without trial, land grabbing, rape, religious persecution and ethnic cleansing against indigenous Buddhist, Hindu and Animist people in CHT.
