Siam Chon News reported that an Indian businessman was assaulted by "beach mafia" after his group brought along their own mat and sat down to take in the midnight air on Pattaya beach this morning.

 

Baldeep Singh Gulati, 41, was hit in the face and knocked down in the incident that occurred just 100 meters from the Pattaya police station.

 

Rinlada Klahan, 29, said that the victim and another Indian friend were with her and her elder sister. Another Indian came up and started an argument and Thais got involved.

 

They were chased away as the Thais said "this part of the beach has an owner".

 

She suspected it was people connected to vendors who rent out mats to sit on.

 

The police found no one to arrest and advised the Indian to make a report and they would follow it up.

 

Siam Chon called the attack the work of the beach mafia at the resort.

No bashing from me - i said misunderstanding which is all too common here between tourists and local Thai.

So, someone ran their mouth (" Another Indian came up and started an argument and Thais got involved.") and they paid the price.

Two days ago we get the cops telling the motorbike taxis to behave themselves, which they probably won't. Now it is the mafia on the beach behaving badly. Don't forget the street vendors, who aren't averse to getting aggressive when you don't buy their crap. I am not even going to start on the taxis.The amount of poor behaviour by those who make a living from tourism is really disgraceful. All the time those who actually do get caught get off with a wai and 500 Baht fine, expect to see a whole lot more from the whole sorry lot of them.

An Indian "businessman" (whatever that means) got in an argument with another "Indian " man, and was then chased away. 

Thats two non-Thais fighting, and some how its beach mafia behaving badly.
