A group of army personnel led by Major Anisur Rahman, second-in-command of Naniachari zone, yesterday, 8 December 2007, raided two Jumma houses in Nua Adam village, two and a half kilometers east of Naniachari Upazila headquarters.

The incident took place at around 1 p.m. About 25 army personnel encircled and then searched the houses of Jetto Chakma s/o August Moni Chakma and Petto Chakma s/o late Pralhad Chakma.

The soldiers asked them whether “terrorists” come to their houses.

They found some back copies of Swadhikar bulletin, a mouth piece of the United People’s Democratic Front (UPDF), in one of the houses and took them away.

The commander also asked Jetto Chakma to report to the zone headquarters tomorrow, i.e. on 10 December.

Meanwhile, sources said the military has stepped up patrol in Naniachar.
