Police talked to the drug crazed man for more than an hour until an interpreter helped out and it was decided to bring a three wheeler to supposedly transport him across the border.

But as cops pretended to comply by offering the man a cooling drink a charge was made and the scythe was wrenched from the man’s hand.

Then the mob who had gathered helped out by beating Jor Jor senseless, said Thai Rath.

He was taken away to face prosecution.

The boy was treated at the scene and was recovering in hospital from cuts to his face and neck.
