During their peaceful protest, the Vietnamese authority sent Vietnamese Polices using arm forces to disperse the protest. Vietnamese polices used electric baton to beat her and made her became unconscious for one day. Since then, she had become ill and passed away on September 25, 2010.

In an interview with VOKK, her father, Mr. Chau Inn, told VOKK that because of his daughter helped the Khmer-Krom farmers to demand returning confiscated farmlands, that is why his daughter was the main target to be attacked by the Vietnamese polices. When she was sick, she was discriminated and ignored for her treatment at the Vietnamese hospitals in Prey Nokor (Sai Gon) City and in Tri Ton town in Tri Ton district.
