Parents of the Pathumwan Institute of Technology student – who is being sought after a brawl on Tuesday left a rival student dead and another seriously injured – have contacted police to arrange for his surrender.

City police chief Lt-General Sanit Mahathavorn said the parents plan to apply for bail release when they bring their son to surrender and hear the charges. 
Southern Bangkok Court on Wednesday issued an arrest warrant for Saravuth Sohprasit, 25, for assault leading to serious injury, assault leading to death and carrying a weapon in public.
At least 10 students were involved in the brawl that took place on the National Stadium skytrain station’s elevated bridge.
Student Chanon, 20, of Rajamangala University of Technology’s Uthen Thawai campus, died from a stab wound in stomach, while his schoolmate, Phuwadech, 22, was in critical condition with wounds to his back and torso. The surnames of both students were withheld. 
The brawl prompted Pathumwan acting rector Sathien Thanyasrirat to order the cancellation of all classes until Monday.
