The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) has written to senior Buddhist figures asking for their help in tracking down Phra Dhammachayo, the fugitive abbot of Wat Dhammakaya in Pathum Thani province.

The DSI letter has gone to the National Office of Buddhism, the chief monk of the Central Regional Sangha Administration, and chief monk of the Pathum Thani provincial Sangha Administration.

If that effort to have the abbot surrendered to DSI fails, the senior monks must participate in the operation to arrest the abbot, DSI chief Pol Colonel Paisit Wongmuang said Tuesday.
