Thai Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) has successfully apprehended two suspects in the murder case of a durian orchard owner in Chumphon, Thailand. The suspects, identified as 62-year-old Pramote and 59-year-old Niyom, were captured in Bang Lamung, Chon Buri, after a thorough police investigation.
According to reports, Pramote and Niyom meticulously planned the murder and hired a mysterious gunman to carry out the crime. Immediately after the orchard owner’s death, the duo fled to Bang Lamung in an attempt to escape justice. However, the long arm of the law caught up with them when the CIB, armed with an arrest warrant from the Chumphon Provincial Court, apprehended them on January 16.
Initially, the accused proclaimed their innocence but were later escorted, handcuffed, and subdued to the Mueang Chumphon Police Station for further legal proceedings.
In another related incident, an intense interrogation is currently underway involving a Royal Thai Army (RTA) sergeant in connection with the double murder of two petrol station workers. The gruesome shootings took place at the Thai Laemthong petrol station in Mueang district on December 29 last year. The suspect, whose identity is yet to be determined, denies any involvement in the incident and is currently attached to the 3rd Infantry Battalion.
In a separate case, Deputy Commissioner of the Royal Thai Police (RTP), Surachate “Big Joke” Hakparn, has stepped in to oversee the investigation into the murder of Buaphan Thansu, a Thai woman. This intervention follows allegations that officers from Aranyaprathet Police Station coerced the woman’s husband into falsely confessing to the crime. However, CCTV footage revealed that the real culprits were five Thai teenagers aged between 13 and 16. As a result of this discovery, the husband, Panya, was released from prison.
These recent developments highlight the efforts of Thai authorities in solving murder cases and ensuring justice is served. The arrests and ongoing investigations demonstrate the commitment of law enforcement agencies to maintain peace and order in the country.
It is important to note that the incident took place in Chumphon, a province known for its durian orchards and natural beauty. Chumphon is a popular tourist destination in Thailand, attracting visitors with its stunning beaches, waterfalls, and vibrant local culture.
As the investigations progress, authorities will continue to work diligently to uncover the truth behind these heinous crimes and bring the perpetrators to justice. The Thai community and tourists alike can take comfort in knowing that law enforcement is actively working to ensure their safety and wellbeing.
