THE UPDF activist who went missing after an armed attack in Dudhukchara today has been found dead.
Pijush Kumar Chakma, 35, had jumped into Dudhukchara stream when an armed gang loyal to Santu Larma rained down bullets on UPDF men at a village shop.
He was washed downstream and was found, a few hours after the attack, at the confluence of Dudhukhcara and Logang rivers.
He bore bullet wounds in the head.
Pijush Kumar Chakma, also known as Hridoy, hailed from South Nalkata in Panchari Upazila, Khagrachari district.
The attack, which took place at about 7:45pm, also left a UPDF supporter, Suniti Chakma, killed on the spot.
