UPDF leader Mithun Chakma shot dead
Mithun Chakma, an organizer of Chittagong Hill Tracts-based political group United People’s Democratic Front (UPDF), was shot dead by unknown assailants in Khagrachhari Sadar upazila on Wednesday afternoon. Local sources said Mithun was returning home at Aparna Chowdhury Para area after making an appearance before a court in a case on Wednesday, when a group of armed assailants abducted him from Aparna Chowdhury Para around 12:30pm. They then took him to the Sluice Gate area, where they shot him in the head and the abdomen. Locals found the 38-year-old in a critical condition and rushed him to the nearby hospital, where the doctors on duty pronounced him dead. There were six bullet wounds on his body, the doctors said. Khagrachhari Sadar police station OC Abdul Hannan said Mithun’s body had been handed over to his family after an autopsy. “No case has been filed regarding this murder yet,” he told the Dhaka Tribune. “We have deployed additional security forces in the township as a precaution.” UPDF General Secretary Rabi Shankar Chakma issued a statement on Wednesday condemning Mithun’s murder. “An army-backed neo masked terror group murdered UPDF Organizer Mithun Chakma in a cowardly, barbaric and unforgivable act of crime. We deeply condemn this murder,” he said.
