BANGKOK – The Internal Security Operations Command (ISOC) Region 4 is on a hunt for Indian fugitive terrorist Jaktar Singh Tara, who is believed to be traveling through Thailand.
The fugitive is believed to be aided by the Islamic State movement. Once he passes through to Malaysia, it is reported that he would try to enter Pakistan to be reunited with other IS extremists.
Meanwhile, Army Commander General Udomdej Seetabutr on Saturday visited Borthong Checkpoint in Nongjik District of Pattani Province in the Southern Region.
The Army Commander was briefed by the local officials on their latest operation results. Borthong Checkpoint’s main purpose is to prevent and protect local motorists from any possible attack. Since its establishment 5 months ago, the number of violent incident has dropped drastically. There have been no reports of incident in the past 3 months in Borthong Sub-district.
Gen. Udomdej expressed his gratitude for the army personnel for their efforts in protecting the lives of the residents by putting their lives on the line. He also greeted them in person, providing the hard working officials the much-needed morale support. – NNT
