A police source said yesterday (Aug 3) that the Crime Suppression Division already contacted local Cambodian police and military units for the arrest of Panya Yingdang, 39, who was believed to have fled the country after the shooting of Paweena Namuangrak, 20, and Anantachai Jitram, 21, in Chon Buri province on July 29.

Thai police already learned that Panya, also known as “Sia Uan Bangla”, was hiding in Cambodia and they expected a positive response from Cambodia in the near future, the source said.

Media reported that one of the arrested suspects told police that Mr Panya had fired six gunshots at the young couple in a vehicle out of jealousy, killing them on the spot.

Paweena earlier worked at Panya’s Pum Pui bar on Bangla Rd in Patong, in Phuket. It was reported he fell for her and wanted to marry her. Violence later prompted the woman to leave him.

After the killing, Panya reportedly tried to flee the country to Cambodia through the Chong Chom border crossing in Surin province but changed his mind when he saw a police checkpoint.

Panya then went through a border crossing in Sa Kaeo province.

Police located Panya’s mobile phone in Cambodia.
