Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan  Kamal said the government is committed to maintain peace and stability in the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) at any cost.

The minister uttered the warning while addressing a discussion meeting on law-and-order situation of the three hill districts on Thursday.

Those who are involved in bloodletting and extortion in hills will face stern actions as the government is working to maintain peace in the hilly areas, he said.

The law enforcers will surely find out all those who are involved in terrorism, and no one will be spared from the hands of them, he said, adding that those who are backing the terrorists will be brought under trial with the help of local people.

The meeting was held at Rangamati Ethnic Minority Cultural Institute organised by Chittagong Hill Tracts Ministry.

The Home Minister said the CHT is a unique place in the world for its natural beauty. It is unexpected that unrest will be instigated here for a handful of people.

With State Minister for CHT Affairs Bir Bahadur Ushwe Sing in the chair, the meeting was also addressed, among others, by Dipankar Talukdar, MP, Kujendra Lal Tripura, MP, Senior Secretary to the Home Ministry  Kamal Uddin, Inspector General of Police Dr Md Jabed Patwary, RAB Director General Benazir Ahmed.
