On the night of February 15, the armed wing of the Junta and Pyu Saw Htee, who were stationed  in Nyaung Toe Village school, Myingyan Township, in Mandalay Region, assaulted a civilian called San Aung and his two sons, Tun Tun Oo and Than Htike Oo. The attack happened in their home, for the reason of participating in protests against the coup. San Aung was sent to the Myingyan District Hospital  and Nganzun Hospital where he was also refused treatment. San Aung died on February 17 at around 9 pm.

Similarly, in the evening of February 17, Aung Nyunt, a Nyaung Toe villager, was taken into the Nyaung Toe Village school and beaten. His body was found on the roadside.
