Bangladesh army coerce indigenous people to destroy houses in Sajek

On 1 January 2016, Bangladesh army asked indigenous people in Sajek to destroy 3 houses at Noi Nombor area where a tourist microbus carrying an army officer and his family was burnt down on 31 Dec 2015.

“The army called us to the camp and asked us to destroy the houses by 10 am Saturday (2 Jan 2016).” one of those attended the meeting told chtnews.com.

“The army refuses to believe that the indigenous people living in those houses are innocent and that they have nothing to do with the attack on the tourist bus.” Another indigenous leader who also wished to remain unanimous for security reasons said adding that the army was threatening to file cases against them if its order was not complied with.

The army has been carrying out massive operations since the attack, forcing many indigenous families including those three at Noi Nombor to flee to avoid arrest or harassment.
