An official who worked as an administrator in MraukU Township was stabbed to death in his car on Tuesday, according to local authorities.
U Bo Bo Min Theik was found dead with several stab wounds to his body, including two on his chest, 12 on his back and one cut on his left eyebrow.
Local police were informed on Tuesday evening that a car had crashed between mile posts No. 169/0 and 169/1 on Yangon-Sittway Road near Thayet Cho Village, between Yongu and Aungpyupin villages, some seven miles north of Punnagyun, Rakhine State, and a body was also reportedly found nearby.
Local police inspected the site and found the dead man under the car. This would be only the first of a number of mysterious occurrences in the apparent murder case.
After examining the documents in his bag, police confirmed that the victim was U Bo Bo Min Theik, who was the former head of the MraukU Township General Administration Department. U Bo Bo Min Theik left his position in MraukU on 19 January to become the Assistant Director of the Rakhine State General Administration Department.
U Bo Bo Min Theik’s body was sent to Punnagyun Township Hospital at 7.15 pm on Tuesday. Earlier in the day, the car was intnetionally set on fire by two unknown men. Firemen extinguished the blaze at 7.25 pm.
U Bo Bo Min Theik had arrived in MraukU on 25 January for interrogation as part of an ongoing investigation into the deaths of seven people fatally shot during rioting earlier this month. After being questioned, U Bo Bo Mon Thiek left to return to Sittway at 2 pm on Tuesday.
According to police sources, the vehicle he was driving was reported stolen from its owner, U Kyaw Myint, 48. Along with U Bo Bo Min Theik, U Kyaw Myint’s two sons and another man were also allegedly present in the car at the time of the accident. Their whereabouts could not be determined.
According to witnesses, there were four men in the car, including U Bo Bo Min Theik. U Bo Bo Min Theik reportedly died in the car, which became involved in an accident, while the other three men fled on foot towards a nearby mountain range.
Shortly after the accident, two men arrived on a motorbike and set the car on fire.
A case has been registered under Section 302/440/114 of the Penal Code at the Ponnagyun Myoma police station, and police continue to actively investigate the case.
