The present report aims to follow up the report titled "Militarization in the Chittagong Hill Tracts, Bangladesh: The Slow Demise of the Region’s Indigenous Peoples" (2012, IWGIA, Organising Committee CHT Campaign and Shimin Gaikou Centre). The 2012 report considered the reasons for continuing violence and human rights violations in the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) after signing of the CHT Accord by the government and the indigenous armed resistance in 1997, focusing on the role of the Bangladesh military. One of the objectives of the report was to provide figures on human rights violations by military and other security forces and attacks by settlers backed by military and security forces in the post-accord period through 2011 (IWGIA, Organising Committee CHT Campaign and Shimin Gaikou Centre 2012: 15-16). The present follow-up report aims to provide supplementary data on violence and human rights violations by military and security forces in the CHT in 2012.
