An armed gang abducted a union parishad (UP) member from his house in Rangamati's Kaptai upazila early yesterday.
The victim is Mong Ching Marma, 45, a member of ward no 5 under Raikhali union, Additional Superintendent of Police (Kaptai Circle) Junayet Kawser said.
Mong was a former activist of Parbatya Chattogram Jana Samhati Samiti (PCJSS), said the police official.
Mong's wife Sama U Marma said a group of 10 to 12 armed men entered their house by breaking open the door early yesterday and picked up her husband.
At first, the gang looked for Mong's elder brother Abu Marma and then picked up Mong instead, as Abu, president of the ward unit of Awami League, was not at home at that time, Sama U said.
Police are yet to arrest anyone in connection with the incident.
