A police superintendent of Muang Kalasin Police Station in Kalasin province was transferred with immediate effect on Saturday night over his absence from work after a Songkran celebration event in his precinct's jurisdiction saw two incidents of brawls involving revellers and heavy traffic jams around the event venue.

The order, signed by Kalasin police chief Pol Maj-General Montri Charanpong, required Pol Colonel Ratchapol Sermsaran to report himself to duty at the Kalasin Police Operation Centre on Sunday before 4pm.

Montri confirmed on Sunday that the transfer order was because Ratchapol had violated the supervisor's instruction to remain in his jurisdiction and direct police duties overseeing the Songkran event.
