A MOTORCYCLIST flung a ping pong bomb at a gigantic billboard put up in front of Pheu Thai Party’s election centre in Don Mueang district this morning (Feb.2) but fortunately there were no casualties, Naewna newspaper said.
Mrs. Puangpetch Chunleaw, chairman of the party’s coordinating committee on political affairs in Bangkok, and her team rushed to inspect the blast in front of this office which belongs to Mr. Suthanapot Kitthanapithak, the party’s candidate in the Bangkok council election.
Suthanapot said that a pillion rider on a motorcycle flung the ping pong bomb at the huge sign that was only put yesterday with the two of them then quickly zooming away.
Fortunately no one got injured with there being sweepers cleaning the road and a motorcycle taxi stand nearby.
However he said he is concerned about the safety of people living in this district because there are a large number of youths there.
Puangpetch said the party’s candidates running in the upcoming general election had filed a complaint with the police. A police team had gathered evidence at the scene and collected video clips from nearby surveillance cameras in tracking down the perpetrators.
