Man kills himself over job loss

A man in eastern Thailand gave up on life and committed suicide after he was turned away from the Cambodian border in Sa Kaeo, Province.

His aim was to seek employment in one of the casinos in the neighbouring country’s Poi Pet district.

After receiving a report, police went to the man’s house in Aranyaprathet district to find him hanging. Police also found a gun and ammunition nearby and photographs of family members who had passed away.

His relatives said the man was very stressed after losing his job due to the Covid-19 outbreak and wanted to try his luck at the casinos in Cambodia.

Though his relatives do not suspect foul play, the body has been sent for post mortem.
