Police want to close Kalpana Chakma case
Kalpana Chakma abduction case would come into halt as the investigators have failed to gather any further information about the case. The police urged to court to end the investigation when they submitted the investigation report to the Rangamati Court recently, said court sources. Police submitted the report to the Rangamati Court on September 27, 2016. However, the information came into light yesterday. The investigation reports said that in the last 20 years total 39 investigation officers of police investigated the sensational abduction case but all of them failed to gather any further information about Kalpana abduction. They also failed to find out the indigenous women rights activist. While contacted, Sayed Tariqul Hasan, superintendent of Rangamati Police, said, “We have followed every instructions given by the court. Still we did not get any further information. That’s why we seek court order to halt the case.” Claiming that police have given full of its efforts to find out Kalpana, he also said, “In the investigation report we have said that if we receive any information in future about the case, we will start investigation again.” Though police want to halt the case, right activists claimed that police cannot halt the investigation. Renowned rights activist Khushi Kabir said: “Police cannot halt any investigation whether or not they trace any missing person.” Khushi Kabir, also a member of International Chittagong Hill Tracts Commission, also said: “My biggest question is that whether the state institution can give notion to the perpetrators if they able to hide their victims, the police will eventually close the case,” Kalpana Chakma, an indigenous and women rights activist was abducted from her village home at New Lalyaghona village in Baghaichari upazila of Rangamati, just hours before polling to the seventh national elections on 12 June, 1996. Kalpana had been campaigning for Bijay Ketan Chakma, then senior presidium member of Pahari Gana Parishad, supported by all hill peoples’ organisations which were then active. Kalindi Kumar Chakma, brother of Kalpana, also an eye witness of the abduction, alleged that of law enforcement agency member Lieutenant Ferdous along with the help Nurul Haque and Salah Ahmed, members of Village Defence Police (VDP), abducted Kalpana. Later, Kalindi filed a case and Bangladesh Legal Aid and Services Trust (BLAST) has been providing legal help in this case after its filing.
