MANDALAY DIVISION – According to the leader of Bo Tiger force, Bo Tiger, the nefarious junta council troops set Sinohkyun village, Singu Township, Mandalay division, and heisted the civilians’ properties.
A unit of 10 junta council servants, including junta council troops and Pyu Saw Htee militants, entered Sintohkyun village which has only around 25 houses, and heisted three motorcycles, cows and other properties at around 10 a.m. on October 2. After that, they (the junta council troops) set 18 houses on fire.
Sintohkyun village which has only around 25 houses, was located around 1 mile away from Ywartharyar village, which is Pyu Saw Htee dominant village.
“There wasn’t any revolutionary forces in the village. They had come, heisted the civilians’ properties and torched the village. Following that they (the junta council troops) returned to Ywartharyar village. As Sintohkyun village is a small village and it was located around 1 mile away from Pyu Saw Htee strong village, they (the junta council troops) were arbitrary rampaged,” said Bo Tiger.
As Sintohkyun village was very close to Ywartharyar village, the villagers have been forced to flee to safety by watching the movement of the junta council troops.
On September 30 and October 1, Shwe Bo district battalion 15 and the local revolutionary forces attacked the junta council subordinates in Ywartharyar village using 40 grenades. As a result, there were casualties on the junta council subordinates’ side.
