Police captain shoots himself dead over ‘unfair transfer’

By The Nation

 

A police captain shot himself dead in his home in Chumphon’s Pathio district on Wednesday night apparently because he felt he was unfairly transferred three months ago.

 

Police said Pol Capt Pichet Suchartpong, deputy inspector in charge of investigation of the Map Amarit police station, 48, was found dead in his house, which is about 500 metres from the police station.

 

He died of a gunshot wound at his right temple. A 9mm pistol was found in his right hand.

 

A suicide note was left in which he complained that he had been unfairly transferred from the crime suppression job to an investigative job because of nepotism.

 

Pichet's 14-year-old daughter noticed that his bedroom light was not switched on after dark so she called her mother, who was visiting her elder brother, to return home to check. Pichet’s wife, Anna Sinthunon, 44, found his body.

 

When Pol Col Seksit Suwanrit, deputy Chumphon police chief, visited the house after learning of the suicide, Pichet's wife said that her husband became depressed after his transfer three months ago.

 

She said Pichet was unfairly transferred and his superior did not consult him about the transfer.

Never nice to learn of a suicide.     RIP.

 

I would think all RTP know they're subject to transfers at any time during their career.

I f suddenly feel so safe knowing that there is such a wide spread mental stability in the force.

RIP 🙏🏻 I hope his wife and young daughter will be taken care of as I would imagine they are entitled to his police pension or is that not the case in Thailand.

Just shows how immature many Thai men are.   When they can't get their own way they have to throw some kind of wobbly; they can't take it 'Up 'em'. !

Hmmm, on another approach ... if I were to be faced with a disabling or terminal illness? If I arrived at the decision that continued life was not worth it? Can I count on your deciding that I don't have the right to end my life? I am thinking you might well condemn my action as immature?

This is the level of maturity of those employed to protect the people? 

 

Good that this one didn't execute those promoted ahead of him, like the last report.

Your level  of compassion astounds me some of you posters.

Believe me depression is very real for those unfortunate to be struck with it & need help

Although it didnt state that he was depressed and he may not have been
