THE army on Tuesday searched the house of a Karbari or village head in Perachara Union under Khagrachari district.
According to sources, at 3 p.m., a group of 15 soldiers from Khagrachari zone raided ‘Ek Nong Prokolpo Gram’ (Project Village No. 1) and surrounded Shanti Bikash Chakma’s house.
Mr Chakma is the head of the village, but he was not at home at the time.
The army men asked his two sons about the whereabouts of the UPDF activists and when they said they did not know, the soldiers threatened them with dire consequences.
The soldiers searched his house but found nothing incriminating.
Then they went to Noresh Chakma’s house, a UP member of Ward No. 5 and a neighbour of Shanti Bikash Chakma, and asked the inmates about UPDF activists and then left for Project Village No. 11.
