DAVAO CITY - Suspected members of the New People's Army (NPA) torched heavy equipment in three far-flung barangays in Davao City over the weekend, police spokesperson Senior Inspector Maria Teresita Gaspan said.

At around 11 p.m. Saturday, undetermined numbers of lawless armed groups burned 4 dump trucks and 1 backhoe owned by Leonard Trucking Services (LTS) in Barangay Callawa, Buhangin District, Davao City.

The armed men, on board a four-wheeled vehicle, then went to Sitio Sta. Maria, Barangay Fatima, Paquibato Dstrict, Davao City, and burned 2 heavy equipment, with the cost of damage pegged at P15 million.

On early Sunday morning, around eight armed men trooped to Barangay Dalagdag in Calinan, Davao City, and burned a backhoe unit worth more or less P8 million.

The separate incidents occurred amid the observance of Holy Week and days after NPA celebrated their 50th anniversary last March 29.
