An official from Aung San Suu Kyi’s Party has died in custody in Myanmar after being arrested during raids by security forces in Yangon.
Reports say the body of U Khin Maung Latt was released to his family, who were told that he had died after fainting.
Activists have however, said that he was beaten while being detained by Police and Soldiers and subjected to a harsh interrogation.
The UN says more than 50 people have been killed since the military detained Ms Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s democratically-elected leader on February1, 2021.
In another development, the military rulers asked neighbouring India to return several Police Officers who had crossed the border, seeking refuge after refusing to carry out orders.
