The information was disclosed in a public notice sent to various government offices signed by Bandarban Deputy Commissioner Yasmin Parveen Tibriji on Saturday (12 November).
Due to the joint operation against terrorists in the border area of Ruma and Rowangchari upazilas of Bandarban and the border area of Barathali Union of Bilaichhari upazila of Rangamati, the administration banned travel to Ruma and Rowangchari upazilas for an indefinite period from 18 October citing safety issue.
