The diligent efforts of the Yannawa Station Police officers are currently focused on compiling substantial evidence to secure arrest warrants for three individuals embroiled in the grave incident which resulted in two deaths and five injuries.

These individuals are alleged to have engaged in the illicit sale of a blank gun to a 14 year old boy, a transaction that would have tragic consequences at the Siam Paragon shopping mall on the fateful day of Monday, October 3.

Heading the investigation are Police Colonel Thiti Saengsawang and Police Lieutenant Colonel Nakornrin Sukontawit, who have taken decisive action by instructing Police Lieutenant Colonel Songsak Sattrit, Deputy Investigator at Yannawa station, to spearhead the collection of irrefutable evidence.

Their goal is to seek judicial approval from the Southern Bangkok Criminal Court to issue the much-needed arrest warrants against the three individuals involved in this distressing incident, reported Khaosod.
