3 indigenous men held for abetting criminals

Security forces have arrested three indigenous people including a village chief from Sukra Moni Karbari Para in Ruma upazila for their alleged link with criminal groups, official sources said.
Shambhu Tanchangya, 56, karbari (village chief) of Sukra Moni Karbari Para, Kala Tanchangya, 35, and Gouranga Tanchangya, 37, were arrested from their houses Monday morning.
They were produced before Bandarban Judicial Magistrate's Court yesterday from where they were sent to jail.
Security forces alleged that they had direct link with criminal groups who are regularly engaged in abduction, extortion and arms smuggling in border areas.
The arrestees directly helped the militant group who engaged in a face-to-face gunfight with security forces at Sukra Moni Para on February 11.
Two militants were shot dead in the gunfight and security forces seized one AK-47 rifle, one Light Machine Gun (LMG), two G-3 rifles, four high powered mortar shells, a walky-talky and large amount of military goods from the attackers.
