According to police, Piplu was involved with the military branch of the UPDF Prosit group

An activist from the Prosit group of United People’s Democratic Front (UPDF) has been shot dead at his own residence by miscreants in Khagrachhari.

The incident occurred in the sadar upazila’s Gachhbanmukh area around 8:30pm on Saturday.

The deceased, Piplu Vaishnab Tripura alias Rony, was from the Balturam area of the district’s Ramgarh upazila.

Khagrachhari sadar police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Shahadat Hossain Tito confirmed the matter to the Dhaka Tribune. 

According to police, Piplu was involved with the arms unit of UPDF Prosit group. He was once arrested with arms in his possession in a drive by joint forces on November 23, 2016. He joined UPDF again after getting out of jail.

Claiming Piplu to be a former activist of UPDF Prosit group, their central Publicity and Publication Secretary Niron Chakma said: “Piplu became physically handicapped after injuring his leg in an accident.

“Reformists of the Parbatya Chattagram Jana Samhati Samiti (PCJSS) killed him, as he was involved with UPDF.”

Sudarshan Chakma, the central student and youth affairs secretary of PCJSS MN Larma group, dismissed the allegations made by UPDF.
