Eight persons have been taken into custody by police in coordinated raids on five locations in Nonthaburi province and Pathumwan district on Wednesday morning. These individuals are thought to be involved in the November 11th killings of a female school teacher and a vocational student on Sunthorn Kosa Road in Bangkok’s Khlong Toei area.
Using a warrant, police searched a home in the Thawee Wattana subdistrict of the Sai Noi district of Nonthaburi and detained a man who was only known as “Warongchai.” The Bangkok South Criminal Court had issued the arrest warrant. Among the eleven objects taken for inspection were a vehicle, a black T-shirt and a mobile.
Seven individuals were taken into custody after four more locations in the capital’s Pathumwan neighbourhood were raided by other police teams.
For finger prints, the eight suspects were brought to the Metropolitan Police Bureau. After that, they were brought to the police station in Thung Mahamek to be questioned.
On Saturday, November 11th, two of the culprits pulled up to a bus stop next to the Sacred Heart Convent School on Sunthorn Kosa Road. They were riding a motorbike. A group of students from the Rajamangala University of Technology, Uthenthawai campus, were gathered at the bus stop when the pillion rider dismounted and started shooting.
Sarida Sinprasert was a school teacher when one of the bullets struck her; she passed away instantly. Last Sunday, a student passed away at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital after suffering severe injuries.
