Police probe shooting at Kalasin BAAC bank

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.
