At least fourteen leaders of the United People’s Democratic Front (UPDF) were killed, one went missing, and 74 were arrested in Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) last year, a statement issued by the CHT-based political party claimed on Thursday.

It also stated that 42 villagers went missing and seven women were raped in 2019.  

It further read: “UPDF leader Ananda Prakash Chakma along with 74 villagers were taken into custody by the police with false accusations, which is a total violation against human rights.” 

It also stated that all of the arrestees were beaten badly. Many got bails from the highest court but police made sure that they had to stay back in the jail by framing them into new cases. 

Last year spokesperson of UPDF, and General Secretary of United Workers Democratic Front (UWDF) Micheal Chakma went missing from Dhaka and remained untraced till date.  

UPDF accused ‘state forces’ for killing of at least seven of its leaders and kidnapping of at least 42 innocent villagers. The government has never taken any punitive actions against the perpetrators, stated the press statement of UPDF.  

The statement of UPDF also added: “Last year seven hill tract women were sexually abused, and out of the seven, two were raped, four survived from getting raped (one BGB man also allegedly tried to rape one of the women) and one went missing.”
