Arrest warrants sought for 3 over Mor Chit row

Police yesterday sought arrest warrants for three young men implicated in the Mor Chit 2 Bus Terminal brawl that left five people dead and six wounded.



Metropolitan Police chief Lt-General Camronwit Toopgrajank, who went to Bang Sue Police Station to follow up on the investigation, said the three suspects clearly captured by security cameras reportedly belonged to an armed group from a Prachacheun community that allegedly came back to the terminal to seek revenge against another group of youngsters working at the terminal's public van stand. A fight had erupted on Wednesday when the Prachacheun gang found the other group partying at the terminal. Citing the 30 or so bullets and spent cartridges collected by police, Camronwit said this suggested at least three guns were involved.

Deputy National Police chief General Aek Angsananont went to inspect the scene at 1pm and said National Police chief General Adul Saengsingkaew instructed him to closely monitor this case as it was a serious crime.Police were working full tilt on it so it should be solved in seven days, he said.
