NMB chief threatens to kill Naniachar Upazila VC

News No. 18/2018: Monday, January 29, 2018,

THE Nobyo Mukhosh Bahini chief Tapan Jyoti Chakma alias Borma yesterday threatened to kill Ms Quality Chakma, Woman Vice Chairman of Naniachar Upazila Parishad, for addressing a women rally in Naniachar, Rangamati.

Ms Chakma told chtnews.com that the army-backed NMB vigilante group leader had called her using a mobile phone and threatened to kill her.

‘Borma also hurled abuses at me, but I don’t really know why he was angry with me,’ she said.

The rally was organized by women activists in Naniachar to protest at the rape of a teenaged Marma girl and sexual harassment of her young sister by two Bangladesh army personnel at a remote village in Belaichari Upazila on 21 January.

‘I am now feeling insecure,’ she said.

Hill Women’s Federation president Nirupa Chakma condemned the threat to kill Quality Chakma as most obnoxious and demanded that the government immediately arrest Borma, who is responsible for the recent killings in the CHT including of UPDF leader Mithun Chakma.
