Hunt for monk who allegedly hacked man to death

By The Nation

 

Police have launched a manhunt for the former deputy abbot of a temple in Udon Thani who allegedly hacked a man to death inside the temple.


Police have also arrested two 15-year-old boys on charge of helping the monk conceal the body. An 11-year-old boy, a former novice at the temple, alerted police to the murder and is now a witness in the case.

 

Police rushed to the Sri Boonruang Temple in Tambon Non Sung in Muang district and found the body of Wicharn Prommin, 44, buried under a newly built concrete floor.

 

The 11-year-old boy told police that Phra Songkran Sinchai, 41, who has fled, killed Wicharn with an axe on Friday evening.

 

The boy said Phra Songkran was drinking in his living quarters when Wicharn came to demand money for a fighting cock the monk had bought from him.

 

The boy said the monk became angry and hit the man, then asked the two teenagers to beat him until he was unconscious. The monk then hacked the face and neck of the man with an axe.

 

Phra Songkran then ordered the two teenagers and the boy to dig a hole and bury the body.

 

The three boys were told not to tell anyone or the monk would kill them.

 

The former novice said the monk's saffron robes were stained with blood and were buried with the body.

  A monk became angry? Perhaps the wrong meditational technique that caused the monk to see red. 

 

  Even monks are Hackers, what happened to this world?

Another Monk proves what so many think today then.

 

£28k given by people to a temple in London in one day last week, silly sods it only provides for a life of crime to the few.

Religion is the root of all evil.  And by the way, when will we get a badly needed hammer, machete, axe, and hatchet ban?

I know many good monks, they do a great service to the community.

With all these Thai monks murdering, raping, stealing, defrauding and God knows what else, I think it is about time that Thailand banned all foreigners from becoming monks !! If they think banning foreigners will stop gun crime committed by Thais then obviously the same applies to the monkhood !

Buddhism Thai-style has mutated to this since the police allowed miscreants to escape prison by joining the monkhood.

The highlights say all you need to know about the darker side of Buddhism. And how is this going to impact upon those 3 teenagers? And how come the top monk wasn't aware of this monk's nasty side, seemingly ignoring his alcohol abuse, dodgy cock dealings, not to mention a pretty evil temper that, surely, others within the Wat must have picked up on?

Unless some strict vetting is put in place, the priesthood is likely to become just as bad as the RTP who had to attend to this sorry mess. If you find one bad egg, there'll be more than one, hiding in the pile . . . or so my mother used to tell me.
