He is also an accused in the case over the murder of a UPDF activist 


Police have arrested a man over the murders of a Tripura girl and an activist of United People’s Democratic Front (UPDF), in Khagrachhari. 

Barendra Tripura alias Shanto, an activist of Jubo Samiti, the youth wing of Jana Sanghati Samiti (JSS), was arrested at Larma Square in Dighinala sadar on Saturday, said Dighinala police station OC Abdus Samad. 

Shanto is one of the main accused in the murder of fifth grader Punati Tripura. On July 28, the girl was raped and killed in Tripura Palli, the OC said.

He added that Shanto is also an accused in the case over the murder of UPDF activist Binoy Chakma, who was killed in Khagrachhari sadar on February 17. 

Meanwhile, JSS leaders and activists had announced a blockade in Dighinala upazila protesting the arrest. However, they later scrapped the program. 

Additional law enforcers were deployed in the area to avert any untoward incident.
