They have been charged with 505 (A) penal code and detained in Loikaw prison. One of them, AGorge, 17 years old was detained only in the police station because of the underage.
The PKPF spokesperson said that AGorge was put to work on some paperwork in the station while he was being detained. A few days ago, a fight broke out between police and the soldiers, and AGorge was shot dead by police.
