Body found in Nay Pyi Taw named Chin civil servant from Hakha
04 February 2014: A dead body found under a tree in Nay Pyi Taw, Burma has been identified as Bia Suan Mung (pictured), a government employee of the Chin State General Administration Department in Hakha.
Some cleaners working in the area discovered his body on 27 January 2014 in bushes, about 150 feet away from the hostel he had stayed at during a trip to the capital city to participate in the opening ceremony of the 27th SEA Games in December last year.
According to the Chin World Media, they found a white necklace with a Christian cross, a watch, a T-shirt and a sarong on his body, which had become rotten.
The 23-year-old Lower Division Clerk, orginally from Muizawl village, Tedim Township, Chin State had gone missing since 29 October last year, one day after his arrival in Nay Pyi Taw with his team comprising three civil servants from the same department and four nurses from Hakha.
His colleague Kham Sian Mung, who was one of the team members, had also gone missing in Mandalay on 28 October but had returned to Hakha on 30 October, according to the Hakha Post.
The case has been reported to the Nay Pyi Taw police but no detailed information is available as to how Bia Suan Mung went missing and died in Nay Pyi Taw.
Bia Suan Mung, a BA graduate in history, started his career in the State General Adminstration Department under the Ministry of Home Affairs in November 2010.
