Ramgarh attacks: No succor yet
News No. 80/2011, April 18, 2011

ONE day after the arson attack in Ramgarh, the government has yet to provide any relief to the victims who have been living under open sky in the jungle.

Khagrachari MP Jotindra Lal Tripura made a brief visit today to the area under strict military control. However, he provided no relief to the victims.

A team of journalists also visited the place of occurrence.

However, a team of Marma Unnoyon Sangsad, a pro-government organisation, was barred from visiting the affected areas. They were stopped at Guimara.

A Relief Management Committee for the victims has been formed in Khagrachari with Binod Bihari Chakma and Monang Dewan as its convener and member secretary respectively.

Meanwhile, reports said the army and police have increased their patrol in Khagrachari town instilling a sense of fear among the Jumma inhabitants.
