Policeman shot dead in gunfight with drug traffickers in southern Thailand
It was gathered that a policeman was shot dead by a drug trafficker who took his car and fled in southern Thailand’s Surat Thani Province, reports said on Friday.
The gunfight took place on Thursday night when a team of plainclothes police pretended
to be taking delivery of illicit drugs from suspected smugglers in the southern province.
One of the suspects fired at the police when the police tried to arrest the traffickers. One of the police was killed at the scene and the other was hit and fell to the ground.
The gunman drove the car over the fallen policeman and managed to escape.
The Police later found the car abandoned in the bushes along a roadside and the hunt for the suspects is underway. (NAN)
