AN ARMED gang loyal to Santu Larma Kidnapped two Jumma women and tortured four men in Korengatoli as the army intensifies repression of Jumma villagers in Baghaichari.
Various sources said that the Santu Group men abducted 27-year-old Nitu Chakma wife of Nibaron Chakma and 28-year-old Eti Chakma wife of Sunil Chakma at gun point from Jyotirmoy Karbari Para village, just 200 yards from Korengatoli army camp.
The incident took place at 3 p.m. today, Sunday.
The terrorists also tortured four villagers, identified as Josamoy Talukder (35) son of Nirmalendu Talukder, Dhenga Chakma (22) Son of Jahurlal Chakma, Thokko Chakma (18) Son of Reboti Ranjon Chakma and Chungu Chakma.
The kidnapping and the torture of the innocent villagers comes as the army intensifies repression of UPDF and its supporters in the area.
A few days ago the soldiers tore down a under-construction office of the UPDF at Rupokari and detained two villagers at Korengatoli bazar today.
There are strong indications that the Korengatoli Camp Commander, Major Selim, is patronizing the Santu Group to counter the influence of the UPDF in the area.----------------
