The home of MP Maung Maung Latt in Tamu, Sagaing Region was attacked by an anonymous person with a hand grenade on December 3 but no explosion occurred, sources said.
“When I heard a motorcycle in front of my brother-in-law’s house, my sister-in-law went out to see who it was. I didn’t live with them. She then saw a hand grenade rolling into the house. She called me later and I photographed it. I called the police as I’m unsure whether it is a dud but the firing pin on the grenade was removed. The house is owned by MP Maung Maung Latt but he was not here. He is in Nay Pyi Taw. His mother and sisters live there. We haven’t seen the motorcycle before,” said Myint Zaw, Chairman of Tamu NLD party.
“We informed regarding the armed groups in the parliament. It may have been done by the Kathe armed group but the hand grenade was too rusted. People think it may have been a scare by other groups as the election is near. It is a threat for us,” said Myint Zaw.
