Bengali settlers murder an indigenous Tripura Hindu in Ramgarh

On 29 April 2016, dead body of an indigenous man named Manendra Tripura (66) was found at Gorukata in Ramgrah, Khagrachari district. The victim's mutilated body with the head, a hand and a leg severed was found in the jungle near his home at about 8 am on April 29.

About 2 years ago Manendra Tripura son of Karmadhan Tripura had moved to Gorukata area from Taracharanpara under the same union. He lived in his home alone. Manendra Tripura had land dispute with 4 Muslim settler families who were living near his house. These 4 Muslim settlers were living there after they grabbed lands from indigenous people with the help of Bangladesh army.

On 29 April all Muslim settlers' houses were found locked from outside which meant that they had left their homes after the murder. The heads of 4 settler families were identified as:

  1. Mohammad Majid (50)
  2. Mohammad Ebaidul (52)
  3. Mohammad Din Ali (50)
  4. Mohammad Dali (65)
