The incident occurred in Bangaltali union under Rangamati district on Thursday

The regional commander of the United People's Democratic Front (UPDF-Proshit group) has been shot dead in the remote Bagaichhari upazila of Rangamati.

A gang of culprits shot dead UPDF leader Udoy Bikash Chakma, alias Chikkyadhan Chakma, 43, around 11am on Thursday, in Bangaltali union under the upazila.

Confirming the matter to the Dhaka Tribune, Bagaichhari police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) said: “A group opposing commander Chikkyadhan discovered that he was staying near the B-Block area of Bangaltali. Armed culprits entered B-Block and shot the UPDF leader dead.

“Since the incident, a tense situation has prevailed in the area. The area has been cordoned-off by law enforcement.”

UPDF (Proshit group) has held UPDF-Democratic (Borma group) for the murder, but the latter party has denied its involvement in the matter.

Local police sources said a team has been dispatched to bring the body into police custody, and further details will be available after their return.
