GHRD is deeply troubled by the scale and ferocity of the pervasive attacks against indigenous people in CHT. The perpetrators of arson attacks on indigenous Jumma people’s homes, shops and places of worship in Naniarchar Upazila of Rangamati District must be brought to justice. Solid measures must be taken to address the urgent need for protection of Jumma people in the area.
On 16th December, 2014 three Jumma villages of Rangamati District in Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) were swept by terror when 400-500 Bengali settlers attacked the area at around 8:30 am.
