Trane villagers confirmed the discovering of the body of U Laung Pyaw, 45, a Trane (Mro) villager in a field on farmland near Myaw Chaung (North) Village at around 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
U Laung Pyaw lived in Sagapinyin Village Tract, Maungtaw Township.
According to villagers, U Laung Pyaw went fishing with other villagers and returned home alone. But, he didn’t arrive home by Wednesday morning. Police from Trane (Rakhine) Police Post led a search for him together with about 30 other villagers. His body was found with several wounds in the field, said the administrative head of the Trane Village U Ein Soe Maung.
“We went to search for him since yesterday evening. But we know of him being lost only late in the evening, so we rounded up other villagers and went to search for him together with security personnel the next morning. We found the body just after 8 a.m. and it was sent to Maungtaw Hospital”, said U Ein Soe Maung.
“He went to fish yesterday afternoon. Others returned, but he didn’t come back. We went to search for him and found his body in the field. We have six children and the oldest is only 17 years. As a mother of young children, I don’t know how I can take care of them” said Daw Paing Tauk, 40, U Laung Pyaw’s wife.
“As my father has died, I’m the eldest now. I don’t know how we will live. None of us know what to do. I have younger brothers and sisters, and I don’t know how we can live. Each of us is in trouble now” said the eldest daughter Ma Paing Pyaw. Earlier this year on 24 June, two Trane villagers from northern Maungtaw Trane Village who went to fish were also killed by terrorists.— Myint Maung, Zeyar
