The total death toll in Myanmar has reached 134 as the military-controlled security forces continue the bloodshed killing 39 more people on Sunday.

Sunday was the bloodiest day since the coup on February 1. The previous highest number of deaths in a day was 28.

Myanmar Military has been increasing its violence over the period of time. Police have been deliberately killing the citizens who are against the military regime.

"The Police Force is even killing the people by abducting them from the house," a resident of Yangon said.

Security forces opened gunfire against protesters on Sunday from early morning to late in the night.

The death toll on Sunday is expected to increase as many people were severely injured and are fighting against death at the hospital bed.

In South Dagon Township in eastern Yangon, three civilians, including a 15-year-old girl, died after being shot in the head and abdomen.

Despite the condemnations from the world bodies and sanctions from different countries, Myanmar's Military had not been affected much as it continues the violent crackdown on the Burmese citizens killing more people each day.
