In the early morning of March 20, the armed wing of the junta raided Myoe Kone Village’s Monastery, in Kawhmu Township, Yangon Region, and shot Thant Sin Aung (aka Pyaung Gyi) in the leg and head when he was running away. He died from the injuries. Thant Sin Aung (aka Pyaung Gyi) was chairman of the Arr Marn Charity Organization located in that monastery. 

On March 18, Khaing Kyaw Linn Tun, aged 15 years old, living in Annwar Ward in Ye Township, Mon State, was shot to death by the military, while wearing plain clothes. Junta soldiers opened fire towards the group, as members of Mon State Revolutionary Organization (MSRO) were repairing a car at a garage near Wal Paung Village, in Ye Township. In addition, Aung Khant Hein, a volunteer for village development, was shot and arrested. He did not receive medical treatment and died during interrogation, on the night of March 20.
