In a midnight raid, army soldiers from Lakshmichari zone conducted searches in a Buddhist temple in Lakshmichari under Khagrachari district.

On 10 January 2007 a group of about 25 army personnel led by Lakshmichari zone commander raided Arya Mitra Bouddha Vihara in Beltoli Para village. The soldiers encircled the temple before the search.

Hearing the sound of their boots, the chief priest of the temple Ven. Shraddha Tisso Bhikkhu came out of his room and asked what they wanted.

The soldiers said they would search the temple to see if there were any outsiders inside. They then entered the temple with their boots on and searched all the rooms of the temple topsy-turvying everything they laid their hands on.

The soldiers did not find any outsider and left, without saying sorry for disturbing him in the dead of night.
