On 8 March 2009, a Muslim settler raped a four-year-old indigenous girl Ety Chakma at Maidda Boalkhali under Dighinala upazila in Khagrachhari.

The ill-fated girl faced the horrific incident on the day when International Women's Day was observed in the country as elsewhere in the world.

The rapist was identified as Mohamed Mostafa Mian, from Maidda Betchhari area under the same upazila.

The victim is now undergoing treatment at Khagrachhari Sadar Adhunik Hospital. Dr BK Tripura, Resident Medical Officer of the hospital, said they have completed examination. He, however, declined to disclose the report.
