Among the arrested were U Pe Than, Ko Aung Aung, Ma Mee Htwe, Daw Aye Than, Daw Kyin Than and Daw Yin New.
They were arrested because of the tip-off from the military informants, the sources said.
The military council accused those arrested of being associated with the PDFs and of providing them with financial support.
They are currently being investigated while being held in custody at the Launglon police station.
Residents claim that regime troops opened fire and yelled at the detainees while arresting them.
