Aung Sang Suu Kyi has been in detention since the military coup this February and faces 11 charges in total.
New Delhi: India says it is disturbed at the developments in Myanmar and the so-called court proceedings there under which Aung Sang Suu Kyi could be sent behind bars.
In response to a media query about the proceedings against Aung Sang Suu Kyi and others in Myanmar, MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said on Tuesday (December 7): "We are disturbed at the recent verdicts. As a neighbouring democracy, India has been consistently supportive of the democratic transition in Myanmar."
He said, "We believe that the rule of law and the democratic process must be upheld. Any development that undermines these processes and accentuates differences is a matter of deep concern."
"It is our sincere hope that keeping their nation's future in mind, efforts would be made by all sides to advance the path of dialogue," Mr Bagchi said.
The pro-democracy leader Suu Kyi, who won November 2020 polls, was ousted in a military coup in February this year and has been in detention since then.
Reports say she has been found guilty of inciting dissent and breaking Covid rules. Ms Suu Kyi faces 11 charges in total.
Since the army takeover in Myanmar and, notwithstanding the covid pandemic, many people from Myanmar's Chin areas have crossed over to Mizoram and stayed there.
