The incident occurred around 11.35am at the APCD 60+ coffee shop, adjacent to the main government building where the Cabinet meeting was taking place.

The aide is attached to Choochai Mungcharoenporn, a Surin province Member of Parliament from the Pheu Thai Party. The cause of the assault remains unknown.

Onlookers at the coffee shop quickly intervened and separated the two before the situation escalated further. The case was immediately reported to the local Dusit police station. The incident has raised concerns about security within the Government House, especially during high-level meetings.
