Arrests have started after the military coup in Myanmar. Arrests ranged from political activists to cultural workers.
According to a report by the BBC, the film producer Min Estin Ko Ko Gi has been arrested.
AAPP, an aid organization for political prisoners, said it had information on the detention of at least 42 officials and 16 social workers.
They also said that efforts are being made to identify the detainees. However, several of the detainees were released yesterday afternoon.
Incidentally, Myanmar's top leaders, including Aung San Suu Kyi, have been seized by the country's army. After this incident, the number of vehicles patrolled by the military has increased in different cities of that country.
A local activist in Yangon said, "We wake up on Monday morning to hear the news of the military coup."
Besides, I also got to know about the arrest of several of my friends.
On condition of anonymity, the activist also said that the internet connection has been cut.
I can't even go out. I can't even use my mobile phone due to lack of data. This is the situation here. Army vehicles are patrolling the city.
