PRESIDENT of the United People’s Democratic Front, Prasit B. Khisha, has condemned the attack on Jumma villagers in Sajek by illegal settlers.

In a statement issued to the press today, Mr. Khisha termed the attack as “salt in the wound” as the Jumma people of Sajek region have already been suffering from shortage of food. He said the attack had been carried out with a view to capturing the whole of Sajek area after driving out the Jumma people by force of arms.

The UPDF leader urged the government to pay adequate compensation to the victims, take immediate legal actions against the culprits, stop land grabbing and withdraw the army and settlers from the Chittagong Hill Tracts.
