BANGKOK – Pol. Maj. Gen. Chitti Rodbangyang of the Bangkok Metropolitan Police force said the police are offering a 100,000 baht reward to anyone who can provide information that leads to an arrest of suspects behind the bombing at Siam Paragon in central Bangkok last Sunday.
Pol.Maj.Gen. Chitti said if police can use the information given as clues for the suspects arrests, we will give the reward right away, adding that citizens can report tips to the police by dialing 08-1817-1617.
Pol.Gen. Somyot Pumpanmuang, chief of the Royal Thai Police,told Khoasod that two suspects had been questioned in the bombing incident however no charges were laid.
According to Pol.Gen. Somyot, police merely summoned individuals “whom the police believed to have information or evidence that would benefit our investigation to give their testimony as information givers.”
Police have yet to determine a motive behind the attack, which they say was launched as an act of harassment, and not designed to injure or kill.
There has been widespread speculation on social media about whether a political group was behind bombing, which occurred in the heart of Bangkok’s financial center and while the country remains under martial law.
