Dead body of Chittipudi Chakma daughter of Manek Kumar Chakma

On 2 February 1992 two bombs exploded on a river ferry at Mallya. The explosion killed a passenger and seriously injured the captain of the ferry. The survivors swam ashore but armed Muslim settlers were waiting for them. Muslim settlers attacked the indigenous Chakma Buddhists in presence of the Bangladesh army and massacred more than 30 indigenous Chakma Buddhists.

One of the killed was Chittipudi Chakma, 6 month old daughter of Manek Kumar Chakma of Harina, Barkal.
