In a school located at Owak Makya village of They Kang Kwa Song village tract, 10 Moghs teachers regularly remained absent through the whole last month in the school, where most of the students are Rohingya.

In a meeting at Zadi Taung, this was reported by the Rohingya committee to the headmistress of the school. During the meeting, she threatened the committee members instead of taking strict actions on the Mogh teachers.
