Large trade unions have called for a nationwide indefinite bandh since Monday to protest against the military coup in Myanmar. There have been demonstrations in many cities of the country including Yangon, Mandalay and Bagan on Sunday. According to eyewitnesses, the police reportedly used grenades and opened fire to control the protesters. At least 70 people were arrested during this period. The protests intensified when Khin Maung Laat, a leader of Myanmar and a member of Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy Party, was found dead in a military hospital on Sunday morning. Such doubts are being raised on social media that Khin died in custody while being beaten. One protester said, the army is killing us like birds and chickens. At the same time, the army has occupied the hospitals and universities of the country.
