Facebook user Orawan Singkum claimed her ex punched, kicked and hit her with the butt of his gun, and also pointed the gun at her sister’s head while allegedly threatening to kill her and wipe out her family.
Orawan’s sister frantically called the village chief’s office but no one came to help. Orawan subsequently went to the police station.
According to her post, the police informed her that they “did not have the power” to arrest her former boyfriend.
“Although my ex threatened me again through the phone, and I urged the police to hear what he said, they did nothing at all,” she complained helplessly.
