 The junta forces have  abducted 11 youths from a ward in Ngapali under Thandwe township of  Rakhine State to enrol them into military services.

 

A local source informed Narinjara News that a group of Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) organizers entered Lin Thar ward of Ngapali beach at around 9 pm on 26 February and abducted those youths.

 

"The members of the USDP and soldiers abruptly entered the ward and abducted 12 youths. One of them escaped by running away,” added the source.

 

Furthermore at around 8 am on 27 February, the junta's 566th light infantry battalion convened a meeting with the administrators and 10-houses group elders from Gyeik Taw, Mya Pyin, Lin Thar, Gawt, Sa Par Gyi and Zee Phyu Kone wards.

 

"I heard that the meeting was called for those who had registered their names for the military services before the coup in 2021. There are around  20 individuals from each ward, who expressed interest in joining the service," stated the resident.

 

According to the local residents, those who were arrested have been kept in the Ngapali-based 566th and 55th battalions.

 

The militia was led by retired major U Aung Naing Oo, who is a former representative of Thandwe Pyithu Hluttaw, said the locals.
