An activist of a breakaway faction of Parbatya Chattogram Jana Sanghati Samity (PCJSS Reformist or MN Larma) was shot dead allegedly by the members of rival political party United People’s Democratic Front (UPDF) at Jannanathpara in Ramgarh upazila on Monday evening.
The victim was identified as Mohon Tripura, 30, son of Krishna Tripura of Gazinagar in Matiranga upazila and an activist of PCJSS (MN-Larma) who recently deserted UPDF.
Brother of the deceased Suman Tripura claimed that an armed group of UPDF opened fire on Mohon Tripura around 7pm, leaving him severely wounded.
He was taken to Ramgarh Upazila Health Complex where doctors declared him dead.
Officer-in-Charge of Ramgarh Police Station Tarek Mohammad Abdul Mannan said UPDF men might have shot him as revenge for changing the party.
