SUSPECTED gunmen today shot at Satyo Ranjan Chakma alias Sorkarjya, 48, son of late Khad Chandra Chakma, a UPDF supporter, at Chowmuhony (Shapla Chatwar) in Baghaichari town in Rangamati district.
The shooting took place at 4:15pm, according to sources.
‘Satyo Ranjan was returning home after watching Durga Puja, a Hidu religious festival, in Baghaichari bazaar, when Santu Larma loyalists opened fire on him.’ an eyewitness told chtnews.com.
The armed miscreants, led by Biplob Chakma, came on two motorbikes.
“But they missed the target and Satyo escaped unhurt. It was a close call.’ he added.
After the failed attack, the Santu men fled through Bot-tola road towards Sizok doar, a JSS (Santu faction) stronghold.
