Maj Sornthip Chukaew of the Tha Chatchai Police was called to the shop, the Kashmir Arts Bazaar in Soi Mai Khao 4, at 10:30am.

A customer arrived at the shop at about 8am and saw the man, Indian national Imtiyaz Ahmad Lone, 31, from Srinagar, collapsed on the floor, Maj Sornthip explained.

“The customer quickly informed the security guard, who called 191,” he said.

Kusoldharm rescue workers took Mr Lone’s body to Thalang Hospital to determine the cause of death, Maj Sornthip told The Phuket News.

“At first I thought he might have suffered an electric shock, but doctors at Thalang Hospital confirmed that was not the cause,” he said.

However, Mr Lone’s relatives later explained that Mr Lone had long suffered breathing difficulties from on ongoing respiratory condition, Maj Sornthip said.

“Mr Lone’s body has now been taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital for doctors there to confirm cause of death,” he added.

Yup, local burning is forbidden, but no one government official ever knock the door of those who do it daily on Phuket. ( plastic, rubber, rubbish). When you report it than Officials are more concerned about you, who you are, why you report it (!-?) than being interested in the culprits who never will be visited anyway. Total government environment ignorance on Phuket.

I'm sure breathing all the smoke from locals burning everything under the sun didn't help at all.  Burning plastic and rubber releases toxic emissions that adversely affect everyone, particularly those with asthma and other respiratory ailments.  These toxic clouds commonly envelop communities, and nobody seems to care.
