Hill Voice, 12 May 2020, Rangamati: An innocent youth has been allegedly inhumanely beaten by army-backed Reformist terrorists at Subalong Bazar in Subalong Union of Barkal Upazila under Rangamati Hill District.
According to local sources, the victim was identified as Jewel Chakma, 27. He is the son of Indra Kishore Chakma of Billachhara village in Barkal union of Barkal upazila.
It is learnt that Juwel Chakma had been suffering from throat pain for some days. Hence yesterday, on the morning of April 11, 2020, he and his wife went to a healer (Kabiraj) in Midingyacheri of Subalong for treatment.
Today, on May 12, 2020, at around 3.00 pm, Jewel Chakma and his wife were crossing the Subalong Bazaar on their way home from Midingyachhari when the reformers called them from behind to load their boat in the Bazar.
But as Jewel Chakma did not notice, then the Reformists chased them with another boat and forcibly took them to the Subalong Bazar.
At a state, without any conversation, the Reformist terrorists led by Purnanga Chakma and Sohel Chakma started to beat Juwel Chakma severely. After beating and harassment, miscreants later released him.
However, it was not known why Jewel Chakma was beaten and what he was questioned about.
