Police have detained seven suspects over an attack against a group of students from Bangkok College of Industrial Technology that left one dead and two injured in Bangkok's Bang Na district on Monday, Metropolitan Police Division 5 chief Pol Maj-General Mongkol Warunno said on Thursday.

 

An arrest warrant has been issued for the man suspected of firing the shot that killed Chanathip Piamyoo, 16, who police have named as 18-year-old technical college student Peerawich (last name withheld).

 

Updating media on the progress of the investigation, Mongkol also presented eight motorcycles, 17 helmets and two knives as well as items of the suspects' clothing, which are being held as evidence.

 

Mongkol said a total of 22 people – nine adults and 13 youths – were involved in the fatal attack on Chanathip and his five friends near Wat Sri Eium on Monday.

 

Police will also apply for an arrest warrant for 19-year-old technical college student Paradorn (last name withheld), he added.

 

Suspects have confessed to producing ping-pong bombs that were used in the attack, which they said stemmed from a rivalry between two colleges, according to Mongkol. He declined to confirm reports that the attack had resulted from a case of mistaken identity. 

 

Previously, a police officer had indicated that the 22 attackers on 12 motorcycles had misidentified the uniforms worn by the victims, who were riding two motorcycles.

I think I've read this dozens of times before, and the solution always offered is to close the colleges for a week. Yep. That'll fix the problem. Some teachers and school heads even encourage inter-college rivalries. Reminds me a little of the Mods and Rockers battles in the UK in the 60s, although they tended not to use bombs and guns. Such innocent days, just a few deckchairs wielded in anger.

I had friends in both camps to avoid being picked on, but leaned towards the mods. Maybe because my father refused to let me wear jeans as only 'yobbos' wore them. How times have changed. Must watch Quadrophenia again.....
