Bengali settler rape an under aged indigenous Marma girl in Ramgarh under Khagrachari district.

On 4 December 2007 around 9:30 am Miss Ruikrashu Aung Marma aged 10, (father's name Ramau Marma) was going to school when a Muslim settler named Shahin (30) from Gochchabil cluster village in Manikchari attacked and raped her.

Ruikrashu Aung Mrama lives in North Hafchari village under Ramgarh. She is a student of year 3 in Wakchari Government Primary School. The Bangladesh army has stepped up its presence and vigil to protect some 14 Muslim settler families who live near the house of Miss Ruikrashu Aung Marma. These Muslim settlers were settled in 2006 in Rimrong Para and Wakchari after evicting many indigenous Marma families. Since then, the Marma people have been living in fear of attack from the Muslim settlers.
