On the night of September 4, Khaing Zaw from Phan Kar Zin Village in Sagaing Region’s Ye-u Township was shot dead in the groin, when he ran into terrorist junta soldiers. 

Naing Myo from Lone Taw Village in Sagaing Region’s Shwebo Township, was arrested by the terrorist junta troops on September 3 at around 2 am, for alleged association with the PDF. He died hours after his arrest due to the injuries from beatings consistent with torture. There were wounds on his thighs, hip and back of his body. 

On September 1, Than Toe Aung a.k.a Balue, living in Kyay Su Village in Magway Region’s Pwintbyu Township, was shot as he ran away when junta troops came to arrest him for allegedly being in the PDF.
