New Bengali character?

Transliteration of the character DEVANAGARI LETTER CANDRA E (U+090D) to
Bengali resulted in something that's not defined in Unicode. Is this a new
character? CDAC's LeapLite seems to indicate so: they claim that this is a
new vowel used to represend English sounds as in "add", but I can't find
any references anywhere else.

I've attached the graphic of the unknown character.
