Myanmar authorities are investigating into routes of cargo containers after a recent finding of arms and ammunitions inside a wheat factory in eastern Dagon Industrial Zone in Yangon.
On Sept. 28, the authorities found a M20 pistol, along with 28 of 7.62 millimeter bullets, two magazines, a bag of blue rope and a gun strap, in a container truck inside the Diamond Star wheat factory.
The truck, which carried imported wheat, came to the factory through Thilawa Port on Sept. 24.
“I am not aware of this incident at all,” the manager of the factory told reporters.
A Singaporean company delivered the wheat, which was produced in Pakistan, to Myanmar.
A combined team comprising Myanmar Port Authority and the police is now probing the incident.
“I cannot answer the question as to this incident at all,” Tun Lin of Dagon Police Station said.
There are a total of 29 factories and about 30 under construction in the industrial zone.
