[Myanmar] Policeman fires into air to control the crowd queued at KBZ Bank in Mawlamyaing
A policeman fired a warning shot to control the large number of crowd waiting to withdraw money in front of the KBZ bank branch opened at Ocean Center in Mawlamyaing in the morning of April 29, sources said.
“I don't know if it was because there were too many people waiting to withdraw money. I think the policeman fired a warning shot to control the crowd,” said a person who lived nearby.
There are people who start queued from 4 am at the bank to withdraw their money. Customers from private banks are only allowed to withdraw one million kyats from each saving account per week and people are facing difficulties to withdraw their money as a bank branch can only allow about fifty saving accounts to withdraw money in a day.
