Bangladesh army and UPDF staged the foreigner hostage drama in the CHT. It is notable that both Bangladesh army and UPDF are very keen to keep the army in CHT. UPDF will get supports and shelter from Bangladesh army and army authority can make instability of the CHT situation through the terrorist activities of the UPDF in order to justify their presence. So, it will serve the interests of both parties. Now, after the end of the hostage drama on 17 March 2001, Bangladesh army started operation throughout the CHT in the name of searching miscreants.
