        The village administrator of Kon Tan village informed police station in Ah Ngu Maw that a boat docked at the beach one mile distant from Aung Bala village and that there were hundreds of Bengalis. Police Inspector Aung Kyaw Tin and a group assigned in Ah Ngu Maw and another group led by Police Lt-Col Kyaw Win Hlaing, and Zaw Win Tun from Immigration, also assigned in Ah Ngu Maw, inspected the place and found more than 100 Bengalis walking along the beach. They were later taken to Maungdaw Township for further investigations.
