A tabbe has extorted 160,000 kyats from a man at Kiladong (Du Char Yar Taan) according to our local correspondent.
Tabbe Sutan Ahmed told Nurul Amin (37) s/o Hafiz that he was on the list of suspects for the murder of a policeman and he was going to be arrested when his name came up in the census.
However if he paid Sultan 160,000 kyats, the tabbe would take care of the matter.
Others arrested on the charges of murdering the policeman have faced brutal torture and Amin feared that the same fate would befall on him. So he pad Sultan 160,000 kyats.
However our sources say that Amin was not on the list of murder suspects and Sultan has cooked this stroy up.
