Bengali settlers attempted to rape an indigenous Chakma girl in Rangamati

On 5 June 2012 Muslim settlers attempted to rape a 16-year old Chakma girl at Munsi Abdur Rob Monument (on Rangamati-Chittagong road) of Manikchari in Rangamati district.

On that day around 11.00 am the victim went to Rangamati Women College to submit admission form for 1st year of higher secondary course. After submission of her admission form at the college, she contacted her father Mr. Jyoti Chakma over cell phone. As her father asked her to come at Banarupa, she came at main road in front of the office of the Superintendent of Police of Rangamati district to take an auto-rickshaw.

At that time an auto-rickshaw carrying 4 Muslim settlers reached there and she got into this auto-rickshaw. Soon after getting the auto-rickshaw, she was compelled by Muslim settlers to sit at the middle seat of the auto-rickshaw. Then the Muslim settlers held her mouth and hair tight so that she cannot shout and move, then the auto-rickshaw was taken directly to the area of Munsi Abdur Rob Monument on Rangamati-Chittagong road. Then the Muslim settlers forcefully took her at the jungle near Ejor restaurant of Munsi Abdur Rob Monument and attempted to rape her there. However, the culprits fled sensing presence of some indigenous Chakma youths who went there to see Munsi Abdur Rob Monument.
