A father of a 15 year old boy has gone to the media to appeal for justice after his son was attacked outside a Khon Kaen nightclub.
He asked for names not to be used for fear of reprisals.
He said that the local police have got nowhere and now he was asking the media for justice as he prepares to visit the head of Region 4 police to get some action.
The father said his son had contacted his girlfriend around 11 pm on the night in question to say he was going out to play video games and do some cruising with friends.
He said it was just normal behavior for his son who had never got in trouble before.
But when the teens drove their motorcycles outside the pub an altercation began. He said that his son was set upon by 3 or 4 bouncers.
He was repeatedly kicked and punched in the head and on the body. Then someone poured gasoline on his leg and set fire to him.
He was dumped by a flagpole.
The next he saw of his son was in a local hospital where he is yet to regain consciousness. He has severe bruising, a ruptured lung and burns.
The case has gone cold, he told Sanook, with the police making no arrest and no one accepting any responsibility for what happened to his son.
Yesterday the father and relatives were preparing to meet with the head of the Region 4 force to demand action in the case.
