PATTANI: -- Police have detained a soldier for allegedly firing gunshots to threaten two female university students in Pattani province.

 

The incident took place on Tuesday evening after the suspect’s car brushed the victims’ motorcycle, sending both the motorcycle rider and the passenger to the ground. 

 

One of the victims, Hanan Zuden, approached the driver to complain about the incident but the driver, identified only as Sergeant Preecha, got angry, pulled out his gun and fired a few shots. 

 

Hanan and her friend, both students at the Prince of Songkla University’s (PSU) Pattani Campus, were so scared that they ran for their lives. 

 

The campus’s Student Union and its legal team helped the victims lodge a complaint with police in the early hours yesterday. 

 

“Both victims have now been relocated to a lodging inside the campus for their safety,” the student union’s president Bukori Kamase said.

 

He added that Preecha was now locked up at a police station in Pattani. 

 

“We will fight for justice,” Bukori said. “Such a violent incident should have never happened, particularly by an official.”

PATTANI: -- POLICE HAVE detained a soldier for allegedly firing gunshots to threaten two female university students in Pattani province.

 

The incident took place on Tuesday evening after the suspect’s car brushed the victims’ motorcycle, sending both the motorcycle rider and her passenger to the ground. 

 

One of the victims, Hanan Zuden, approached the car to complain, but the driver, Sergeant Preecha Intarangsy, 31, got angry, pulled out his gun and fired a shot. 

 

Hanan and her friend, both students at the Prince of Songkla University’s (PSU) Pattani Campus, were frightened and ran for their lives. Two more shots were fired and the sergeant shouted after them “do you think it is a toy gun?”

Hanan later told her teacher and the campus chief of security about the incident before filing a complaint with police. The campus’s Student Union and its legal team helped the victims  lodge the complaint with police in the early hours yesterday. 

 

“Both victims have now been relocated to a lodging inside the campus for their safety,” the student union’s president Bukori Kamase said.

 

He added that Preecha had been detained at a police station in Pattani. 

 

“We will fight for justice,” Bukori said. “Such a violent incident should have never happened, particularly by an official.”

 

Pattani Task Force commander Maj-General Jatuporn Klampasutra offered a public apology to the students for the soldier’s conduct, saying that he had been upset after a quarrel with his wife. 

 

He added that Preecha had been transferred to a military prison. 

 

Preecha would be punished for violating military discipline and charged by police for frightening people and carrying and discharging a gun in public, he said. 

 

The sergeant had rejected charges of attempted murder, Jatuporn added.

Incredible. Absolutely zero self control. Something pisses him off and he's instantly in a murderous rage. Not a thought about what he's doing, how he could kill someone, how he could possibly ruin his career. Also incredible how the good old Thai smile and a wai fixes everything.

 

And what about: "The sergeant had rejected charges of attempted murder"? That's a good one. Must remember that. If I every get in trouble with the law I'll just reject the charges and everything will be hunky dory.

The South of Thailand is already a Hot Pot where citizens and soldiers are killed on a regular base.

This hothead is just what the Military need now.
Putting more oil on the fire and smiling from his head to his teeth about that.
Should be shot by a fire squad.

Actually this soldier should drop a rank for his actions. However in Thailand I doubt he will

get any charge or fine, as he is a soldier and the country is being ran by the military right now.

Geezer

Playing Devil's Advocate: It's entirely possible that he clipped their bike because he was driving like an asshat just having quarreled with his wife. It seems he was composed enough to stop otherwise, how did the rider walk over to "complain"? We also don't know that she isn't some hi-so that just let out a tirade about daddy's money and power and he just lost it.

Attempted Murder? Naw, warning shots fired to boost your ego and express rage into the air doesn't warrant murder.
