The arrestees were identified as Suren Cakma, 36, Annasang Chakma, 45, Anil Chakma, 19 and Symon Chakma, 40.

Tipped off, a patrol of the Bangladesh Army conducted a drive at Choto Kattali area of the upazila around 3m and arrested the four as they were extorting money from local people.

One AK-22 rifle, 77 rounds of ammunition, 1 magazine 1 walkie-talkie set, one solar charger, four mobile sets, fake ID card, banners with anti-state slogans and Tk63,592 was recovered from the arrestees, said a senior intelligence official.

The four belong to the armed branch of the UPDF (Prosit) and were involved in terrorist activities, extortion at different upazilas of Rangamati, said the army sources.

Legal actions will be taken against them and such drives will continue to maintain the peace and stability in Chittagong hill-tracts, they said.

UPDF is a political party based in the Chittagong Hill Tracts, but a splinter group led by Prosit has resorted to terrorist activity and extortion.
