An Indian man filed a complaint with the Thai police after he was attacked by three fellow Indian nationals in the central province of Prachin Buri after a business dispute.
The 33 year old Indian man named Rantusa filed a complaint at Kabin Buri Police Station that he was attacked by three other Indian men in front of the laundry shop on Saturday night.
Rantusa reported that two attackers came in an SUV, while the third approached on a motorcycle.
The group attacked Rantusa using their hands and a motorcycle helmet. Rantusa tried to take refuge in a laundry shop but was followed and dragged back out by the attackers, who attempted to force him into the SUV.
However, a Thai customer who was present in the shop came to Rantusa’s assistance. Rantusa stated that he did not retaliate, but rather tried to defend himself from the blows.
Rantusa believes that the attack is related to his business. He said he has been living and operating a clothes shop in Thailand for nearly eight months. His shop was in the Baan Kok Udom Market in the Kabin Buri district of Prachin Buri.
He stated that he received a threatening phone call demanding that he close the shop or move to another location, and he believes that the call was from the attackers.
The owner of the laundry shop provided footage of the incident to the police, and a screenshot of the video has been circulating on Thai social media, clearly showing the identities of the attackers.
The Commander of the Prachin Buri Provincial Police Office, Winai Nutcha, has confirmed that the officers are investigating the case and gathering evidence.
The story is similar to another row between two Indian businessmen in Thailand.
A Thai-born Indian man was attacked earlier this year after opening an Indian restaurant near another Indian restaurant in Krabi province in southern Thailand.
The victim, Wirent Tiwari, was welcoming customers into his restaurant when he was suddenly attacked by an Indian man. Read more HERE:
