Rangamati Correspondent

Two activists of United Peoples Democratic Front (UPDF) were allegedly abducted yesterday.

In a press release, UPDF claimed that members of Parbatya Chattagram Jana Sanghati Samity (PCJSS) abducted Shukra Sen Chakma, 29, of Jurachhari, and Ranjan Chakma, 28, of Barkal, from Rangamati Reserve Bazaar.

There has been a long-standing rivalry between the two organisations over the CHT peace accord. PCJSS supports the agreement while UPDF opposes it.

Bodishattya Chakma, secretary of PCJSS, Rangamati, however, rejected the allegation.

"The members of UPDF are responsible for such incident," he added.

ASI of Kotwali police station Afriza Begum said none filed any case in this connection.
