On 16 August 1989, Bangladesh army personnel from Naniachar Zonal Head Quarter arrested 2 indigenous Buddhist persons in Naniachar, Rangamati district. Bangladesh army subjected them to inhuman tortures.

The arrested persons were charged with a false allegation of placing bombs at Naniachar Bazar. The victims are:

  1. Mr. Ratan Bikash Chakma, 17 yrs, a school boy, son of Mr. Surya Sen Chakma of Karikhyong, Rangamati.
  2. Mr. Harris Chandra Chakma, 60 yrs, son of Mr. Kumajya Chakma of Tripura Chara, 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 withou trial, land grab, rape, religious persecution and ethnic cleansing against indigenous Buddhist, Hindu and Animist people in CHT.
