Additional policemen and extra weapons have been assigned to northern Myanmar’s Kachin State, after a recent attack at the local Karmine police station by Kachin Independence Army (KIA).
“The security has been increased...the stations have been installed with CCTVs, and new fences and underground bunkers have been built as instruction,” state level officer of Myanmar Police Force said.
Karmine Police Station fell under attack early in the morning of December 8.
It was the first time police station became the victim of attack, and weapons were seized from the arsenal during strike.
One officer and two women from the police family were killed. A gate guard was injured and sent to hospital but died later in hospital in spite of surgeries.
According to a report submitted to Kachin State Parliament last September, 13 government staff members had been killed in the unrest Kachin State.
