A member of Parbatya Chattogram Jana Samhati Samiti (PJSS) Santu Larma's group was shot to death by miscreants at Bagaichhari upazila in Rangmati district on Friday.
Deceased Suresh Kanti Chakma alias Dinesh was a resident of Jarulchhari village under Bangaltali union in the upazila.
Local sources a group of armed men went to Dinesh’s house in the Bangatali area and opened fire on him indiscriminately at Babu Para, leaving him dead on the spot.
Soon after that, the criminal immediately escaped the place.
Confirming the matter, Bagaichhari Police Station officer in-charge Md Anwar Hossain Khan said being informed, police rushed to the scene, recovered the body and sent it to Khagrachhari Sadar Hospital morgue.

Meanwhile, the upazila president of PJSS MN Larma's group Gyanjib Chakma claimed that no one of his party was involved in the killing.
The crime was a fallout of an internal rivalry in the Santu Larma group, he added.
