One week to go: Walking Street more like Hell Zone than Happy Zone as man attacked

Walking Street in Pattaya is more like Hell Zone a week before the area is officially designated as the resort's first "Happy Zone".

The observation comes after the experience of a Thai/ Indian man who was beaten up and threatened with being shot and thrown in the sea by bouncers at a discotheque in the famed South Pattaya street.

Dipak Kumar Tiwaree, 30 said he was at the Nasa Discotheque on Thursday evening. He had been taking some pictures with his mobile phone when the bouncers led him out back of the disco. Dipak said the Indian owner also was there.

"I was asked, Who are you working for?" I said I was not working for anyone, I was just having a night out", he said  at Pattaya police station on Friday.

He claimed that one man got out a gun and stuck it in his ribs saying that he could easily shoot him and throw him in the sea - no one would know.

He was then physically attacked by ten bouncers, he claimed, and tossed outside where the  guards told police he had been making trouble inside.

He said that police at the scene did not lift a finger to help him. Despite being in some distress he was not even given first aid or a drink.

Later at the police station on Thursday night he came face to face with his tormenters again. When police stepped out of the investigation room he was left alone with them - one made the sign of a gun with his fingers and pointed at him.

Nothing was resolved.

So later on Friday Dipak went back to register a formal complaint. He had facial bruising and a wound on his forehead and bruises all over his body, he said.

Police said they would get everyone together again to come to a just settlement for all sides

Top brass police are due in Walking Street next Saturday to declare the entertainment area a "Happy Zone" where tourists will be safe from trouble.

We actually expect the RTP to do their job, too much filthy lucre to be made ignoring the plight of tourists in fact anyone for them to do the job they are paid to do. despite what their bosses say.

Ok, Maybe I'm missing something.

 

"He had been taking some pictures with his mobile phone "

 

He is in side a club on walking street taking pictures, while the government is trying to clean up the area. They have already had a few clubs raided in the last few weeks because of someone calling into the police and complained.

 

And what does nationality (owner Indian and he is Indian) have to do with it.

 

I not condoning there action, if that is really what they did, but I kind of get the feeling they asked him to erase the pictures and/or he mouthed off at them.

 

What happen to the pictures?

Settlement:

The thai/indian man get 5000 Bath.
The owner shot him and make him disappear.

Settled!

Correct, big price to pay for taking pictures inside the club.

Very Dumb man.

Never take pics inside a bar in Thailand.  A well-known fact.  If the owner/manager says "OK", you're fine.  If you don't ask, you could be in trouble.  If you don't know and you're a first-timer, you didn't do your research before coming which seems to be the case all too often in recent years.   

i agree 100% but whats the big deal about taking a few pics really ? i think they blow taking a few pics well out of per portion.

"Come to a settlement"..... the guy had a gun in his ribs, death threat and beaten up, left alone in investigation room with assailants.....  the RTP are turning Thailand into the Liberia of S.E. Asia.

All very positive for the global image of tourism and tourist well treatment and safety!

I was chatting up a gal in Insomnia last year while 5 huge young Farang power lifter types walked in. The  security staff looked like cowed puppies. An hour earlier, they had struck, and  literally thrown out two slender Farangs who had committed the unspeakable act of questioning their inflated bar tab.LOL

Where is this encyclopedia of "resarch" I have lived here 18 months and it's the first I've heard about not taking pictures in a bar. If you cannot use cameras there should be a sign on the entrance to the establishment.

A walk down the street by a few 'Officials' and a declaration that everything is good is NOT CHANGE. 17% of Thailand's GDP comes from Tourism unless they really truly want to keep this and increase it they need to do much better.  The tide ALWAYS turns.
