YANGON DIVISION- Not long after the shooting incident at No. (94) Ward Administration Office, Dagon Seikkan Township, Yuzana Garden Housing where two administrators were killed, the local market nearby was destroyed by junta troops and thugs. Now the Ward Administrator Mr. Khin Maung Zin is reportedly trying to sell 64 square feet of land (8 x 8 feet) for 3.5 million kyats, stated the locals.
One week after the death of Ward administrators Mr. Win Myint and Mr.Tun Tun Win, in the shooting incident on February 19, 3:35 a.m., at the Ward-94 administration office at the corner of (14) Street, Ward Chief Khin Maung Zin requested the military council to close down the market on Kankaw Road, said a resident.
“This guy (Khin Maung Zin), was a former military spy. He was also present when the ward office was attacked but luckily escaped. He was the one who forcefully shut down the market. Now he is talking to the former shop owners at the market to buy the plot of land he is going to sell. He and his Pyu militia members gathered in their monastery and only barked in the neighbourhood after the police dogs arrive (worked together with armed junta troops and oppress the locals),” said the local.
After the shooting incident, starting from February 22, the doors of the firmly built shophouses, roofings, iron poles, etc. were removed and the rest of the building was demolished by the municipality with a bulldozer, and pushcart vendors were also banned from selling at the marketplace.
The former market area is large and there would be more than 400 plots of 64 square feet(8 feet x 8 feet) of land, and if all these plots are sold, they would get around 1.4 billion kyats.
During the shooting at the Ward Office No. (94) of Yuzana Garden City, the administrative officers Mr. Win Myint and Mr. Tun Tun Win were killed, and four hundred- household headmen Mr. Myint Wai, Mr. Phyo Ko Ko Maung, Ms. Khin Swe Win, and Mr. Aung Win were reportedly injured.
