Settler attempts to grab land in Panchari

 December 22, 2009

The settlers are making attempts to grab 7 acres of land belonging to four Jumma individuals in Panchari under Khagrachari district.

The land, which falls under third class category suitable only for plantations, lies in Taiongpara village under Choto Panchari Mouza in Latiban Union and belongs to Chandra Joy Tripura son of late Koni Ram Tripura, Modyo Joy Tripura s/o late Moni Mohan Tripura and two others.

“Four Bengali settlers from Choto Panchari went there to occupy the land and cleared jungles this morning,” a DYF member from Panchari quoted Chandra Joy Tripura as telling him.

Mr. Tripura told his that one month ago, Hedayet from Choto Panchari had gone to the Jumma land owners taking police along with him, apparently to intimidate them, and claimed that the land in question belonged to him.

Since then, the Jumma land owners have gone to many people in authority including Latiban Union Council chairman to seek justice, but to no avail.
