Police query why DSI officials failed to mention photos 
Police have questioned the intention of two Department of Special Investigation (DSI) officials in not telling them from the outset about photos they took of a detainee who died in suspicious circumstances.
Tawatchai Anukul, 66, a suspect in an illegal land-deeds case, died while in the custody of the DSI on August 30. 
DSI officials have said Tawatchai hanged himself and they called for medical assistance from a nearby hospital. 
“We wonder why they didn’t tell us during the first interrogation that they took photos of the medical help [being administered],” Thung Song Hong Police Station’s superintendent Pol Colonel Mana Pohchuay said yesterday. 
The DSI officials in question are security guard Chayapol Wancha-aim and Pol Lt Colonel Pairoj Laorattananurak, deputy head of the DSI detainee-control division.
The photos were later submitted to police by the DSI. Chayapol and Pairoj were interrogated separately.
