MAGWAY DIVISION – The Earthquake People Defense Force (EPDF) said that Major Aung Tun of the junta army was arrested alive with important court documents, a drone and a bulletproof vest, but was killed after he tried to resist.
The junta major, who returned from Lashio to Western Chauk Kan Village, was captured alive at his home but died after being shot because he fought back. The defense force could have gotten weapons, but they retreated as there was no time to search the house as it was close to the military checkpoint, said a spokesperson for the EPDF.
“Yes, the major is dead. We put him down as he tried to fight back,” said the spokesperson.
Major Aung Tun was captured with intelligence records, other police records and a drone along with documents related to Pakokku Township Court and other important documents. It is said that actions will be taken based on the seized documents.
