The Min Buri Provincial Court on Thursday (July 13) approved a warrant for the arrest of a Pakistani man suspected to have killed his Thai wife in a house in Bangkok’s Nong Chok district on Wednesday.
Pol Col Pornthep Sutipanya, the Nong Chok police chief, identified the man as Mian Vagus Ahmad, 27, who was believed to have fled the country.
His Thai wife, Napassorn Pathan, 39, was found dead in a house in Soi Mit Maitree 6/1 in Nong Chok district.
Pol Col Pornthep said the footage of security cameras and other evidence pointed to Mr Mian as the sole suspect. On July 12, Mr Mian and Napassorn left the house on a motorcycle at 11am and returned together at about 12am.
At about 2pm, Mr Mian walked out of the house alone before taking a green-yellow taxi along Mit Maitree road, heading for Lam Phak Chi area.
According to a police record, Nassaporn filed a police complaint late last year, saying that she had been beaten up by her husband. However, the two were able to settle their dispute. Their neighbours told police that Mr Mian and Nssaporn often quarrelled.
The Pakistani man had been staying in Thailand for two to three years, properly with a passport and visa.
