The daily protests at the Din Daeng intersection will end by October, says the Bangkok Metropolitan Police Bureau. The police did not specify how the protests would end.

The daily demonstrations have been held since last month. They have been organised by locals, who call themselves “ThaluGas”, as well as protests by Ratsadorn Taliban, and Ramkhamhaeng for Democracy. There have been numerous violent skirmishes with police. The Thalugas, which means “mob that goes through tear gas,” allegedly threw ping pong bombs at police, recently. Prior to the bomb incident, a protester was shot in the neck and fell into a coma.

The bureau also claims the protesters are responsible for a car accident that happened last week, which contradicts the narrative on social media that it was the police who were responsible. Bangkok’s deputy police chief, Piya Tawichai says that a demonstrator had run in front of a car, which is why the accident happened. Later, police used a water cannon to extinguish the fire the car accident caused.
