Two bombs exploded at a river ferry at Mallya. The explosion killed a passenger and seriously injured the skipper of the ferry.

Bangladesh army tortures an indigenous Chakma Buddhist in Khagrachari

On 23 Feb. 1989, Bangladesh army of 31 EBR from Khagrachari Zone led by Lt. Col. Mohsin arrested an indigenous teacher of a Primary School in Khagrachari. Bangladesh army arrested the indigenous Chakma Buddhist on the pretext that his brother had joined the JSS.

Bangladesh army inhumanly beat, tortured, threw the victim into a pit and kept him without food and water. The victim is:

  1. Mr. Mihir Kanti Chakma, 36 yrs, son of Mr. Kamini Ranjan Chakma of Harinath Para, Khagrachari.

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 withou trial, land grab, rape, religious persecution and ethnic cleansing against indigenous Buddhist, Hindu and Animist people in CHT.
