Politician gunned down in Nakhon Si Thammarat

By The Sunday Nation

 

A GUNMAN armed with M16 assault rifle gunned down an influential local politician in Nakhon Si Thammarat yesterday.

 

Anant Klungchan, 54, who served several terms as a Nakhon Si councillor, was hit by multiple shots in the attack at his house in Cha-uat district at 7.45am.

 

Anant, a failed candidate from the Chart Thai Pattana Party and an adviser to the party leader, was bathing his favourite fighting bull near his house when the gunman cut him down in a hail of bullets.

 

Witnesses told police the gunman rode in the front passenger seat of an old red pickup truck.

 

At first the pickup drove past the house, apparently to observe and locate where Anant was.

 

Then the truck was driven back and a man in the front passenger seat opened fire at Anant, taking him down and pumping out more bullets while the victim was on the ground before speeding off.

Bull fights in Thailand? To own a fighting bull one must have a few sheckles I guess. Time to follow the money again to find the killer
