Mawlamyine, June (1)

A man and his son were found dead in the field of Phehtaw village in Mon State’s Mawlamyine on the morning of May 31, said the locals.

The deceased were 70-year-old U Myint and his 40-year-old son, U Ohn Han, from Phehtaw village.

The two did not return home on May 30 and were found dead in the field when their family and relatives searched for them.

U Myint died from a three-inch cut on his right eye and lacerations to his right cheek and left side of his head.

His son, U Ohn Han, also died from an open wound on the back of his head, bruises on his forehead, and a cut under his left eye.

According to local residents, the two were said to have been killed with machetes by people who had been drinking while sitting together, but Than Lwin Times has not been able to confirm this independently.

Police are hunting the suspects who committed the murder, but they are still at large.

The rule of law was weakened in Mawlamyine after the coup, and there were incidents of looting and killing people, but the police barely identified and took action on most of the incidents.
