Bengali settlers abduct an indigenous Buddhist girl in Longadu

On 10 August 2013, a Muslim settler Mohammad Kamal (30) abducted a 13-year old indigenous Chakma girl from Chadarachara village of Atarokchara union of Longadu in Rangamati district. The victim was a student of grade five of Bhangamura Model Government Primary School.

It is learnt that Mohammad Kamal was a fisherman. Few days prior to abduction date, he started staying at Pravat Chakma’s home for 3 days with the purpose of fishing. After leaving the host’s home, on mobile phone, Mohammad Kamal invited the girl’s parents to visit his home on the occasion of Islamic festival Eid. Mr. Pravat answered him that he and his wife would not be available at home for next 3-4 days for an important family program.

Mohammad Kamal abducted the girl when he became aware that girl’s parent left home for few days and left their daughter in home. It is noteworthy that there were no proper windows and doors erected in Pravat Chakma’s house due to lack of money. As a result, abduction of the girl from such poorly constructed house was a bit easy for him.

Soon after abduction, the victim’s father Pravat Chakma filed a General Diary(GD no. 434) with Longadu police station on 14 August 2013.
