Mysterious bullets which killed a 35-year-old driver of a car at a road checkpoint in Mae Suai district of Chiang Rai on Jan 2 was probably fired by some of the four assistant village headmen manning the checkpoint, according to Provincial Police Region 5.

 

Pol Lt-Gen Poonsap Prasertsak, commissioner of the Provincial Police Region 5 responsible for the North said that the checkpoint was not manned by the police but local administration officials who included district officials, village headman and assistant, and volunteers.

 

He said it was a temporary traffic checkpoint where no police were deployed. The fatal shooting happened at about 8.30pm on Jan 2 when Sornchai Sathitdamrong, 35, drove his sedan past the road checkpoint.
