Arrested DYF leader handed over to police

Hill Watch Human Rights Forum

NEWS No. 48/2007, October 30, 2007

The army today handed over Michael Chakma, organising secretary of the Democratic Youth Forum, a front organisation of the United People’s Democratic Front, and Suman Chakma, a teenager boy, to Langudu Thana police under Rangamati district five days after their arrest on 25 October from Baro Harikaba village under Langudu Upazilla.

They were kept incommunicado in army custody at Maini zone and tortured badly. At the time of handing them over to the police, the army placed one homemade LG gun and a few rounds of ammunition in their hands and then filed a false case under Arms Act.

The army personnel in CHT are exceptionally notorious for their brutal tactics of staging false drama of capturing “tribal terrorists”.

Two other innocent villagers – Shukro Ranjan Chakma and Anadi Chakma -, who were arrested in raids on 27 October following the arrest of Michael Chakma and Suman Chakma, have not been produced before the police. They have been still kept in army custody.
