civilians including four women were taken to Kyauk Phyu town from Sanae police
station for more interrogation after they were arrested by the military council.
Those seven individuals are among 14 civilians, who were arrested by the security forces soon after the Arakan Army (AA) arrested Kyaw Zin Win, the in-charge of Sanae police station under Kyauk Phyu township.
It may be mentioned that the AA arrested police officer Kyaw Zin Win from the Sanae market area in the morning hours of 24 July. Following the incident, the local authority arrested those 14 civilians from Sanae town for questioning.
Among them 7 were released after preliminary questioning, but 7 were taken to Kyauk Phyu.
Among the female detainees include Ma Khin Nila Nwe (20 years old, a third-year college student) and Ma Khin Thuza Nwe (25), hailing from Kan Byint ward of Sanae town. One of the male detainees included Aung Naing Win, a clerk of 5th ward in Sanae town.
A member of the arrested families said, "I don't know the names of all the detainees. Only I came to know that 3 are male and 4 female. Lately 7 individuals were taken to Kyauk Phyu district police office.”
Narinjara News contacted the Kyauk Phyu district police chief, but he said, "I don't know. They were not transferred to our police station.”
After the incident of the police officer’s arrest, the markets and schools remain deserted because of security concerns. A resident informed, the number of pedestrians in the town has also decreased.
"As markets and schools are closed, there are a few people on the road. It is even worse than the Covid-19 restriction days. The parents have decided not to send students to the schools,” he added.
Rakhine State security and border affairs minister colonel Kyawthura was contacted over telephone but he did not pick up the phone.
