Indigenous groups in Bangladesh still face discrimination accessing basic state services including health care and education.

That's according to Raja Devasish Roy, Chief of the Chakma, an indigenous people native to the South Asian country.

Mr Roy is a member of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues which has been meeting at UN Headquarters in New York.

Janie Cangelosi asked him if the Chakma still have to deal with high levels of discrimination.
