Four villagers were wounded after they were beaten by members of the JSS M. N. Larma faction, popularly known as Reformist, in Betchari Christian Para under Khagrachari Sadar Upzila on Thursday.
The victims have been identified as former UP member Satyo Broto Chakma, Gulo Chakma, Rubel Chakma and Rikumoni Chakma.
Two of them were admitted to Khagrachari Sadar hospital with serious injuries.
According to eyewitnesses’ accounts, some activists of the JSS (M. N. Larma faction) had asked the victims to prepare lunch for them.
‘But the Reformist men thought the foods were not to their taste and became angry and gave them an earful for It.’ they said.
‘Later at 3:00 p. m. the Reformists came dead drunk to Christian Para again and beat the four villagers severely.’
Two JSS-Reformist leaders – Suniti and Gorom babu – masterminded the attack, according to the eyewitnesses.
