Let me tell you that there is heavy violence in Myanmar these days. Here people and even policemen are turning to the neighboring countries, including India, as refugees to avoid alleged military atrocities. There are differences among the 10 ASEAN members as to whether there should be a meeting or not, between the risks of large-scale violence and civil war.
In the last few weeks, the army has been increasing the use of force against protesters. More than 80 people were killed in Bago City in an incident earlier this month. Eyewitnesses told local media that during this time soldiers used heavy weapons and whoever appeared to be running around, were allegedly shot at.
