New Delhi (Mizzima) – Nyo Min Lwin, a Burmese film director, was arrested in Bahan Township in  Rangoon on Wednesday, reportedly after police found amphetamine pills in his possession, according to Bahan Township police authorities.

A police officer in the Bahan Township Police Station told Mizzima that Nyo Min Lwin had been transferred to the Ahlone Township Police Station.

However, Nyo Min Lwin’s wife denied that her husband had been arrested. She said that he has been on a trip.

When Mizzima contacted the Ahlone Township Police Station,  officers refused to provide any information.

In January, Nyo Min Lwin was reportedly filming a movie in the Cyclone Giri-affected area of Kyauk Pru, the second largest city in Arakan State, staring Nay Toe and Khant Si Thu, along with Ray Dike, Tun Tun and Moe Yu San.
