Medical staff at Patong Hospital work on the shot man but failed to save him

Phuket Killers Strike After Prayers: Kalim Man Shot Dead

Saturday, April 25, 2015
PHUKET: A man was shot and fatally wounded in daylight yesterday in what Phuket police believe is a property dispute over access.

A gunman or gunmen blasted Id Chaisith, 74, as he walked home from praying at a shorefront mosque in Kalim, north of Patong, about 2pm.

He was hit by five bullets in the groin and torso, investigating officer said. Khun Id died later in Patong Hospital.

''We only have one motive, and that is over a side soi about a block back from the beachfront,'' an officer said.

''Khun Id claimed that he owned a narrow roadway. Others were not happy. That is our first line of investigation.''

There is a mediation process on Phuket, slickmlb. Perhaps you are just blind to it? Try visiting Phuket Provincial Court. Enter and turn right.
