Ethnic armed group Kachin Independence Army (KIA) collected money from the vehicles and set the four rice trucks on fire in Tanai of Kachin State.
About 30 members of KIA (leader is under scrutiny) stopped and inspected the vehicles on Tanai-Myitkyina road near Rawam hillock in Tain Kauk Village of Tanai Township at 3 pm on 13 April. If the drivers showevd some documents of paying tax to them, KIA collected K40,000 per truck. If the drivers cannot offer such documents, KIA gathered K250,000 per truck and K50,000 per small vehicle. They collected money from a small car and three large trucks on that day.
That team also burnt four rice trucks, including three 12-wheel trucks and one 10-wheel truck in the forest about 1 mile from Tanai-Myitkyina road. It caused about K175 million in damages to four vehicles and about K38.4 million worth of damages for 1,200 rice bags.
