On 26 October 2007, an illegal plain settler Md. Mostafa of Moyurkhil cluster village under Lakshmichari in Khagrachari district made an attempt to rape a Jumma girl.

The incident occurred at around 10 a.m. when Ms Myenu Marma alias Anu (23) was on her way to Shalbon Buddhist Temple at Hatichara to make food offering to the Buddhist monks on the occasion of Prabarana or full moon festival.

Seeing her alone on the road, Md. Mostafa, the illegal settler, barged in front of her at a place near Kalimondir, a Hindu temple, and then grabbed her.

Desperate in his attempt, the settler also struck her in the neck with a sharp knife leaving her wounded seriously.

As she resisted and screamed for help, people from the nearby village rushed there and rescued her.

But by that time, the settler was able to snatch her golden necklace and run away.

She was admitted to Lakshmichari Health Complex and needed many stitches in her neck.

A case has been filed with the Lakshmichari police station in this connection. However, the culprit is yet to be arrested.

Ms Anu Marma is a resident of Monghola Para village in Lakshmichari. Her father’s name is Thoaichai Marma.
