One Jumma villager in Belaichari of Rangamati district has been seriously wounded after army personnel tortured him.

A belated report reaching from the area said on 4 August, Monday, at around 8 am a group of about 30 – 40 army soldiers led by captain Tanvir (8th Bengal), commander of Dhupchari camp, went to the house of Tonnyapu Tonchongya, 40, (s/o Kangchandra Tonchongya and mother’s name Phulmoti Tonchongya) in Downpara.
