Joint forces apprehended Sumet Chakma (30), a suspected subscription collector associated with the UPDF-Prasit group.
The arrest took place in Baghaihat Bazar, located in the Sajek Union of Baghaichhari Upazila in Rangamati, based on credible intelligence.
On the afternoon of Thursday, July 13, authorities took Sumet Chakma into custody while he was in the act of collecting subscriptions.
The operation resulted in the seizure of several items, including a receipt book, cash, a mobile phone, and a motorcycle from him.
