THE army-backed Nobyo Mukhosh
Bahini vigilante group has given Monti Chakma’ family in Naniachar until 12
noon today to leave their village, after she had narrated her traumatic
experience during a month long captivity.
‘NMB chief Tapan Jyoti Chakma
alias Borma gave the order in a mobile call to her parents.’ a press release
issued by UPDF said.
Borma threatened them with
death if they defy his order, it added.
Hill Women’s Federation’s
general secretary Monti Chakma and its Rangamati unit’s general secretary
Doyasona Chakma were kidnapped by NMB vigilantes a la Boko
Haram Islamist militants in Nigeria on 18 March during an armed raid in Abashik
village in Kudukchari of Rangamati district.
The incident provoked
widespread protests in the Chittagong Hill Tracts and other parts of the
country including Dhaka and Chittagong.
They were ultimately released
on 19 April from Khagrachari after a month long captivity.
After their release the two HWF
leaders yesterday held a meeting with representatives of 19 progressive
organizations in Dhaka to offer their thanks for their support for the protests
and to narrate their ordeals during captivity.
This has infuriated the NMB
vigilantes, who ordered Monti Chakma’s family to leave their Morachenge Doar
village in Naniachar.
