At 8.25am on Monday, Privy Councillor General Paibul Khumchaya visited Firadao Lateh and Montree Kongchang at Narathiwat Hospital and presented them with gift baskets from His Majesty.
The two were injured in a bombing followed by gunfire as they covered police officers investigating a shooting incident in Moo 4 village in Rangae district’s Tambon Bor Ngor on April 13.
After the visit, Paibul was flown to the 48th Ranger Regiment in Narathiwat’s Joh I Rong district to visit rangers and locals as instructed by the King. There he handed out 100 bags of basic necessities and conveyed the King’s message that he was concerned for their safety. He later went to the 4513th Ranger Company in Rangae district to hand out another 100 bags of basic necessities to rangers and local people on the King’s behalf.
