ACTIVISTS of the Hill Students’ Council (PCP) came under attack last night by illegal Bengali settlers in Khagrachari town, PCP sources said.
The PCP activists were doing wall writing last night at Chengi Square when members of the Bengali Students’ Council pelted them with stone.
“It was around 10:30pm. We were writing slogans on walls about our organization’s 25th founding anniversary when a group of settler youths began throwing stones at us,” a PCP activist told chtnews.com.
He said PCP activists had made a counter attack and that the clash had lasted for about 20 minutes until the police came to the scene and brought the situation under control.
The PCP condemned the attack, saying ‘it was a planned attack carried out without the slightest provocation from us.’
