No evidence over Kachin teacher murders

No evidence has been found about the criminals who raped and killed two Kachin volunteer teachers on January 19 this year in northern Shan State.

The police and an investigation commission formed by the Kachin Baptist Convention (KBC) failed to find any evidence about the murderers, after questioning several Kaunghka villagers, where the murders occurred, said Reverend Zau Ra of Muse Township KBC. 

“The case is still under investigation. We plan a press briefing and a prayer service on the first anniversary of the murders,” he added.

Another KBC member said the army had failed to reply to a request for a meeting. 

The 20-year-olds were volunteering with the KBC in the village.

The KBC formed the 15-member investigation commission on February 7.

A total of 28 soldiers from the military unit, which was in the village at the time of the incident, were also questioned.
