Car bombed Friday night in Bangkok's residential Talingchan area, no injuries

BANGKOK: -- A car belonging to a Silpakorn University student was severely damaged in a bomb explosion while parked in a residential lane in the capital's Talingchan district Friday evening.

The new vehicle was parked in Soi Chakprah 16 in Bangkok's Talingchan district at about 11pm, no one was injured by the explosion.

The owner told police that he drove his new car, bearing the 'red plate' dealer-issued license plates, to give his friend a lift and he parked his vehicle at 9pm. Two hours later he heard a loud explosion and found that his new car was damaged by a bomb.

A nearby building was also damaged by the bomb.

Police said whoever was responsible placing the home made bomb under the car was not known, but an investigation was underway. The vehicle's owner said he had no conflict with anyone.

Earlier in the day, two young women and an older man were injured by an explosion in a trash bin on Rama 3 Road in Yannawa district.

Hidden in a common large green plastic trash bin located in front a grocery shop in Rama 3's Soi 29, the bomb went off at around 5.30pm. The explosion left Rungthip Thipsot, 27, Sumontha Kotebutree, 16, and Paiboon Nakyoi, 53, with minor injuries.

The grocery owner also operates a nearby snooker parlour.

The two girls suffered only minor injuries and were sent to Charoenkrung Pracharak Hospital while Mr Paiboon was sent to Lerdsin Hospital.

Fifty-seven-year-old Siamseng Saetia, the grocery owner, said she saw a suspicious looking box containing a mobile phone with wire and a battery in her house near a snooker table on Tuesday but dared not move it as she was warned by her daughter that it may be a bomb.

On Friday, a neighbour, Prakorn Boonprakobkij, volunteered to move the suspicious bow in the trash, which he did at around 4.30pm.

The explosion took place half an hour later.

It was not explained why the household members did not inform the police.

An initial investigation by explosives experts and forensic police found the bomb was a home made explosive device which may have been triggered by a mobile phone signal.

National Police Chief Pol Gen Wichean Potephosree said he believed the incident was a personal conflict, not related to the political situation or an attempt to instigate unrest in the capital.

However, he had ordered checkpoints to step up security around Bangkok. (MCOT online news)

Anyone want to jump to conclusion?

1. The red-shirt did it to create fear?

2. The army did it to extend SOE in BKK?

Someone sees something that looks like a bomb and doesnt call the police??? Maybe they thought they could disarm it themselves, and get a free phone!!! Its funny that when you read the news here, it looks more like candid camera.

Maybe the bomb under the car was for driving after 6pm with red tags, it is still illegal , isnt it? Of course he wanted to impress his friend, so thats ok.

PHEW! That's Ok then, or should they get their forensics guys on it before he starts a dopey face-saving exercise that reassures nobody?

And the guy said he had no personal conflicts so how can the police so quickly and comprehensively contradict him. On what evidence?

There was a time, long, long ago when personal conflicts were solved with the opponents arranging a date and time to fight each other till death. Their clients / supporters would cheer them on. The survivor would inherit all including supporters. Now those were the days of chivalry, personal valor. Just to be clear on this, never ever in Thailand as far as I know.

"...said she saw a suspicious looking box containing a mobile phone with wire and a battery in her house near a snooker table on Tuesday but dared not move it as she was warned by her daughter that it may be a bomb."

A possible bomb IN your own house and so your neighbor helps to throw it in the trash. Great. 'Not in my backyard' syndrome, let's just leave it outside with the garbage man or where others walk by? The daughter probably knows more than the mother thinks.

Probably didn't call the police because the police wouldn't know how the detonate it.

You know, we hear many funny, odd or unusual stories which can cause a chuckle or even a belly laugh. But to find something which looks so much like a bomb... and to be told that it might be a bomb... and just to have it moved and not call the police is a jaw dropper.

She had a bomb in the house for 4 days and didn't call the police! What about the dope who moved it the the bin? These people should be prosecuted for this.

Probably didn't want to get involved....calling the police might get someone mad at you...might indicate you saw/know who put the bomb there. Summary: don't want to get involved.

So they discovered the bomb INSIDE THE HOUSE on Tuesday.They were aware that it was a bomb but didn't do anything untill the FOURTH DAY.So they sleep with a bomb in the house for 3 nights without informing police or anything.Then on the fourth day they decide to move it to the public walkway and surprise surprise after 30 minutes the bomb explodes.

I'm not gonna say that I smell a rat,but I smell the pied piper of Hamelin.
