Police yesterday summoned employees of the Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives (BAAC)'s Song Puai branch in Kalasin's Muang district for information after unknown party in a truck opened fire at the branch office on Sunday night.



Police suspect the shooting may have been done by youngsters but had not ruled out an internal dispute or a farmers’ rage about overdue rice payment as a possible motive, Pol Colonel Sermsak Neunuan of Muang Kalasin police station said. 
Branch manager Napachara Makhumlek said a farmer’s rage over the rice-pledging payment was less likely as the branch had only 800 farmers awaiting payments worth Bt55 million.
