Ex-soldier confessed to kidnapping and killing his girlfriend | News by Samui TimesTha Rua district police from Ayutthaya traced the fugitive, Polakrit Wiset, an ex-soldier, after he abducted his girlfriend, Ploynarin Pliphol, and went underground to a house in Tambon Nong Mai Pai of Nong Boonmark, belonging to his new girlfriend.

Ploynarin, 25, was abducted in front of a factory in Ayutthaya province in May 2014. Arrest warrant has been issued for Polakrit after footages from CCTV cameras showed that he was the suspect.

Tha Rua police with the cooperation of Nong Boonmark district police and troops from Surathampitak barrack were sent to Tambon Nong Mai Pai since late Friday night (Aug 11) to lay siege to a house where Polakrit was believed to be hiding.
