CHIN STATE – It is reported that CNDF comrade Salai Van Biak Him, who was incarcerated in Kalay City Prison, passed away at the Kalay City Public Hospital on the morning of yesterday, August 6. He was arrested by the Junta Council in Kale City in June 2021, together with Van Diem, who was killed in a prison shooting last year.
“We heard that he had a heart disease,” CNDF spokesman Salai Kung Ngai said. He arrived at the hospital in Kalay at 10:00 a.m. yesterday (6th August), and after half an hour, he passed away. He was only sent to the hospital when he was barely alive. Inside the prison, they usually don’t get proper treatment.
And the body of the late comrade was not allowed to be carried to his native town, Phalam, and is buried in Kalay City.
Currently, 14 CNO/CNDF members have been captured by the junta, and two of them have fallen.
