Goutam,
 
If what you are trying to achieve is to render the virama (U+09CD) visibly
in the middle of a word, this can be achieved using U+200C: ZERO WIDTH
NON-JOINER

ie. ????????


09A6:   ?  BENGALI LETTER DA
09BF:   ?  BENGALI VOWEL SIGN I
0995:   ?  BENGALI LETTER KA
09CD:   ?  BENGALI SIGN VIRAMA
200C:   ?  ZERO WIDTH NON-JOINER
099F:   ?  BENGALI LETTER TTA
09BE:   ?  BENGALI VOWEL SIGN AA
09DF:   ?  BENGALI LETTER YYA

This is described in the Unicode Standard.

Does this solve your problem?

	Dear All,
	Rules on Bengali "Text Processing-Combining Character Sequences"
using 09CD need attention. Possible bugs are shown in the attached file.
	 
	Thanks & Regards,
