Thai media has urged the public to keep calling immigration to report overstaying foreigners. 

Naew Na reported that immigration chief Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang was ultimately behind the arrest of two Indians in Saraburi.

Saraburi immigration and the local police took two men aged 31 and 32 into custody in the Wat Dao Reuang area of Muang district in the city north of Bangkok. 

The 32 year old was on overstay of 455 days and the 31 year old had overstayed 1,464 days. 

Thaivisa notes that the Saraburi area was central to inquiries in the last year that saw many Indians arrested for being involved in hundreds of sham marriages to Thai women. 

Naew Na repeated the 1178 hotline for people to report illegal foreigners in Thailand. 

A Thai poster on the story criticized the language used by Naew Na.
