MANDALAY DIVISION – According to locals, within six days from June 28 to July 3, six unidentified male dead bodies were found in Mandalay and some were wearing “Thwaythauk labled cards” on their necks.
The body of a man who seemed to be in his forties was found alongside (Ywarshay Lane) Mingyiyannaung Road in Patheingyi Township on June 28, and two men in their thirty with incised wounds with Thwaythauk labeled cards on their necks were found dead on the road to Katkyaw Pagoda in Amarapura Township on June 30.
On July 2, another male body with wounds was found near Nagae Village, Ownchaw- Shwesaryan Road in Patheingyi Township, and on July 3, an unidentified male body (without any visible wounds) was found at the intersection of 91st and 40th streets in Seinpan Quarter, Mandalay, according to philanthropist groups that sent the bodies to the hospital.
Apart from the body found at Seinpan Quarter (near Warso Monastery) which seems to be the body of a homeless man, the other bodies show some evidence of violence and may have been murdered.
The two bodies found along the road to Katkyaw Pagoda Road, near Shankalay Kyun, with the “Thwaythauk” labeled cards may have been murdered and dumped there by junta affiliates, remarked the locals.
In Mandalay Division, including the city of Mandalay, Pyu Saw Htee militias are involved in robbery, arson, and ransacking of the locals. The junta affiliates arrest unarmed local people and NLD party members, killed them and dumped their bodies after placing the “Thwaythauk” labeled card on their necks.
A few days after the death of a father and son, who were serving the junta regime, at Kyunlone U Shaung Ward near Mandalay Lake, the two bodies of young men were dumped near Mandalay Lake and Shankalay Kyun with Thwaythauk labeled card on their necks.
In Mandalay, the Pyu Saw Htee members and ward administrators, who are involved in illegally arresting and committing murders, robberies, and violence along with the junta troops are also targeted and eliminated by the resistance forces lately.
