Parbatya Chattagram Jana Sanghati Samiti (PCJSS) has demanded immediate arrest and exemplary punishment for those responsible for the attack on CHT Commission, while strongly condemning the dastardly act.

"PCJSS thinks those who do not want implementation of CHT peace accord and want the ongoing tension to continue to fulfill their vested interest are behind this attack."
