Game over for molesting monk
NONG BUA LAMPU: Police arrested a monk who promptly confessed to molesting two boys, aged 12 and 14, after promising the boys’ parents that he would reveal to them the last three numbers in the national lottery. The monk, Phra Sa-ngiam, had stayed in one of the temples in the village and was acquainted with the boys’ parents. Having heard they were having money problems, he told them he would perform a rite that would help him summon up the last three numbers in the lottery. Only young boys could attend the rites, he said, so six young boys were sent with the monk to a remote part of the village. The monk took two boys inside a shack and told them that they would have to let him touch their genitals and that they would also have to touch his. Outside, afraid of missing out on the numbers, the other four boys peeped through the boards of the shack. When they saw what was happening, they ran to raise the alarm. Villagers surrounded the shack and frogmarched Phra Sa-ngiam to police. He pleaded guilty and has since been disrobed and is awaiting trial for molestation.
