HWF calls road, riverways blockade in Rangamati on Saturday
The Hill Women's Federation (HWF) has announced a dawn-to-dusk blockade on road and riverways of Rangamati on Saturday, in protest of the rape of two teenage sisters from a Marma family. The announcement was made through a statement issued on Thursday. The statement read that the blockade will be enforced to press home six-point demands, including the death penalty for those involved in the rape.
