The protests that seem to harm the stability of the State, security of people, the rule of law, community peace and tranquillity currently occur in some large cities of the nation. Therefore, Section 144 of Criminal Procedure and a ban on gatherings of 5 or more people have been imposed.
About 150 protestors conducted chanting, protesting and riots starting 9 February morning near Thabyay Kone roundabout in Zabuthiri Township of Nay Pyi Taw Council.
Although Myanmar Police Force members request the protestors to disperse, the protest crowds have grown bigger up to more than 1,000.
The district and township administrators also warned the protestors regarding Section 144 of Criminal Procedure and requested to disperse.
The situation became intense more and the police inevitably fired shots to disperse at noon. The shot left six people injured.
A total of six police and six protestors were injured and police materials damaged, according to the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services statement.—MNA
