Five activists of the Hill Students Council, a front organisation of the United People’s Democratic Front, have been released on bail today.

Sujan Chakma Ekalokkyo, Bergu Chakma, Paithoi Marma, Chungku Chakma and Beauty Chakma were arrested on 20 May 2006 from Moghachari in Lakshmichari while they were returning from Khagrachari after attending their organisation’s founding anniversary.

The army halted the jeep carrying them back, interrogated and singled them out for arrest. They were taken to the camp, tortured and then handed over to the Lakshmichari Thana police. A false arms case was filed against them.

They spent 13 months in Khagrachari jail before being transferred to Chittagong prison on 7 June 2007.

On 5 March 2008, the High Court granted them bail.
