He was gunned down by miscreants on Friday
A member of Parbatya Chattagram Jana Sanghati Samity (PCJSS) has been shot dead by miscreants in Baghaichhari upazila in Rangamati.
The deceased is Basu Chakma, 40, an activist of the PCJSS-MN Larma reformist group.
Basu was killed when a group of miscreants swooped in on him and opened fire, while Basu was having a meal, in the Babupara area around 7:30pm on Friday.
Baghaichhari police station Officer-in-Charge MA Manzur confirmed the incident. "The deceased's body, alongside one LG and nine rounds of bullets, were recovered from the spot," he said.
Publicity Secretary of JSS-MN Larma group Shudhakor Tripura blamed JSS-Santu Larma group and United People's Democratic Front (UPDF) for Basu's death. "We think they killed Basu because we supported a pro-Liberation force during the recent election," he said.
Basu's body was sent to Khagrachhari General Hospital for autopsy.
