Another Jana Sanghati Samity (JSS) supporter was shot dead by unknown miscreants in Bandarban Sadar upazila on Thursday.

The deceased Joy Moni Tanchanga, 51, was killed in his residence in Kuhalong union around 7pm.

Locals said miscreants shot the victim after failing to find his son, local JSS leader Ripon Tanchanga, 28.

Kuhalong Union Chairman Sanu Pru Marma said: “Miscreants broke into Joy’s home looking for his son Ripon, and shot Joy after failing to find his son.”

After the incident, members of the army and police were deployed in the area and recovered the victim’s body around 10:30pm.

Joy was trader who sold wood. Following the murder, panic has spread among the people of the region. 

Earlier, a Jana Sanghati Samity (JSS) worker was killed and another kidnapped at Rajbila union’s Tangkhali on Tuesday.

Witnesses said a group of miscreants shot Binay Tangchanga, 36, who ran a grocery store in Tangkhali Bazar at around 10pm on Tuesday.

The miscreants also kidnapped Puradhan Tanchanga, 32, from Shailtan Para in nearby vicinity.

Locals said they both were associated with JSS, and they suspect the murder and kidnapping were masterminded by a reformist group within the party.
