Police will call on experts to help determine whether the static line used for a cadet parachute drill on Monday was properly installed and of good standard.

Two police cadets were killed during the drill because of problems with the static line. A fact-finding committee, headed by an inspector general of the National Police Office, is looking into the case. 

National Police Chief Gen Adul Saengsingkaew said he had demanded that the investigation come to a conclusion as fast as possible.

In response to reports that the parents of one of the |dead cadets suspect that their son’s conflict with a senior |student might have been involved in his fatal plunge, Adul said he understood the parents’ feelings and thus would ensure that the fact-finding committee address this suspicion too.
