JSS: We are not responsible for Mithun Chakma murder
The MN Larma Group of Parbatya Chattagram Jana Samhati Samiti (JSS) has denied any involvement with the murder of Mithun Chakma, a leading organizer of the United People’s Democratic Front (UPDF), claiming that it was the result of the latter's internal dispute. At a press briefing in Khagrachhari on Thursday, the JSS also claimed that its leaders were named in the murder case by their opponent to harass them. Both JSS and UPDF are Chittagong Hill Tracts-based political parties. Mithun was shot dead by unknown assailants in Khagrachhari Sadar upazila on January 3. At Thursday’s briefing, which was also attended by top JSS leaders, the organization’s Information and Publicity Secretary Sudhakar Tripura said the naming of their leaders in the case filed by Mithun's cousin Oni Bikash Chakma was politically motivated. JSS-MN Larma Group on Friday afternoon also brought out a protest procession from Sadar upazila’s Mohajonpara and held a rally at Chengi Square. Speakers at the rally had threatened to launch tougher programs if the case against JSS leaders was not withdrawn immediately.
