On 19 August 2008 a group of Bengali settlers made an attack on the house of Jadhu Mani Chakma (45) s/o Kusum Kumar Chakma of Gangaram Mukh of Sajek union under Baghaichari upazila in Rangamati district. Jadhu Mani Chakma was chopped to death in this attack.

It is learnt that on that day around 10.00 p.m. a group of Bengali settlers led by Jahar Ali s/o Asaniya Ali encircled the house of Jadhu Mani Chakma and then chopped Jadhu Mani Chakma and his wife Shanti Bala Chakma (35) in front of the house. Jadhu Mani Chakma was killed while his wife Shanti Bala Chakma got admitted at Khagrachari sadar hospital.
