An express bus passenger died during an overnight stop while travelling from Mandalay to Yangon at the Mile Post 138 Checkpoint of the Yangon-Mandalay Expressway on 3 September.
The deceased is a man named Ko San Lwin Aung, aged 46, who lives in Nyaungpin Village of Dagon Myothit (Seikkan) Township in Yangon Region. He was missing and found dead when passengers regather to leave in the following morning.
