Rangamati Killings: Cops yet to identify the 3 deceased

The law enforcement agencies could not identify three people who were killed in an alleged gunfight on Monday evening.

Police sent the bodies to Rangamati General Hospital yesterday morning where forensic experts finished conducting autopsies on the bodies by 1:30pm.

Sawkat Aktar, residential medical officer of the hospital, said, “The victims were shot in their heads while one of the victim’s faces was badly damaged by bullets.

“The shooters shot them from a very close distance.”

The doctor also said that the victims were aged between 25 and 30.

Although Rangamati district police claimed that the three were killed in a “gunfight”, local sources said some members of Mogh Bahini abducted the trio from remote Noapara area of Rajbila union in Bandarban Sadar.

Uthan Marma, chairman of Gaindya Union Parishad, said, “The gunfight incident created a climate of fear and intimidation among the indigenous communities living in the area.”

Male members of the communities in the area are now staying elsewhere, said locals and public representatives.

Alomgir Kabir, superintendent of Rangamati police, said the trio would be buried as unclaimed bodies.
