In last two days, around 10 Police officers including the Inspector San Htin from Maung Daw Police Station  were arrested by Special Investigation Department (SaSaSa) apparently sent from Nay Pyi Taw. These Police Officers were arrested for their high involvement in cross-border drug trade. Inter-Disunity between two Police Drug Gangs- one led by the Inspector San Htin and another led by Sub-lieutenant Aung Kyaw Khant- caused the arrests of the said Police officers.
