Deputy Police Commissioner-General Pol General Virachai Songmetta on Tuesday (January 7) visited the crime scene where the car of Pol Lt-General Surachet Hakpal, special adviser at the Prime Minister’s Office, was shot at by two suspects on Monday evening.

The spot was at a massage spa in Bangkok’s Silom area. Surachet was getting a massage in the spa when the suspects fired at his car.

According to an inspection, Virachai said the suspects were two men wearing helmets and riding a motorcycle. 

“One wore a cream jacket, jeans and white sneakers, while the other had a blue jacket, jeans and white sneakers,” he said.

The men rode into an alley near the crime scene before arriving back at the place and taking a minute to shoot eight times at the empty car.

The police estimated that after committing the crime, the suspects headed to Rama IV Road before taking the Sam Yan intersection. 

“We are investigating the reason for their shooting,” Virachai added.

Officers of the Metropolitan Police in Bang Rak and Pathumwan districts have teamed up to investigate the case.

Virachai held a morning meeting at the Metropolitan Police Bureau, and will request Surachet to provide the police with evidence tomorrow (January 8).
