On the night of 28 November 2007, a group of army personnel from Bizitola camp in Khagrachari district conducted raid on the village of Gurgujjyachari and searched the houses of Nani Gopal Chakma (50), a teacher of Gurgujjyachari Government Primary School, Smriti Bikash Chakma (53), a shopkeeper, and Kiron Kanti Chakma (50), a health worker.

They were in deep sleep when the soldiers awoke them shortly before midnight. No reason was cited for the search.
