the police outpost from the school nearby, at gate #1. In our group was Kay Fike Tular, Mawlawi Adu
Ra Man, Mu Na, Ar Kis, and myself. We had 4 AK-47’s in our group. At that time I carried a
handmade gun from Bangladesh. We also had knives and heavy sticks.

In Nga Sar Jue Village and Kyat Yo Byin Village we fought the Burmese military, shooting at each
other. One of our Bengalis died. And, another man from Mu So Ni refugee camp in Bangladesh,
named Ar Ti Ula was shot in the leg. After the shooting, Kay Fike Tular, and the wounded man, Ar Ti
Ula, and 26 other Bengalis - I don’t know all of their names - joined other militants in the Kyar Gaung
Taung Mountains, in Kyar Gaung Taung Village Tract, and hid there. They had 15 AK-47’s and some
other handmade guns.

During the attack on the Nga Khu Ya Border Guard Police Base, among the 20 that came from
Bangladesh to join the attacks, 3 of them were killed. Another 4 of them ran away to Nga Sar Jue
Village then Kyat Yo Byin Village, and then I don’t know where.
