The news of a murder and rape is seen as a challenge to the rule of law. Four people murdered a man and raped his wife near the diplomatic zone in the capital city of Nay Pyi Taw late at night on 30 September.
The couple is reported meeting their tragic and violent fate on the way to the capital city, with Police Col Ko Ko Aung saying that the local police station was informed of the murder-rape case the next morning.
Local police rushed to the scene for further investigation, interrogating witnesses for more information that would help identify the suspects.
Two of the four convicts have been apprehended, the police officer said, stressing that the crime had no relation to revenge or money.
He added that delinquent offenders were reported to have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the felony.
Security has been further tightened in the capital city as the general election is approaching.
