Thai father walks free! Dad granted bail over shooting at Tesco Lotus | Samui Times

The Nakorn Pathom court has granted bail to the father who shot a 23 year old Kasetsat University man in the parking lot of Tesco Lotus.

Thai father walks free! Dad granted bail over shooting at Tesco Lotus | News by Samui TimesSuchart Buasaengjan, 71, had grown tired of Uthep Samngamnoi’s constant advances to his daughter. She also didn’t want to have anything to do with him.

When the pair met by chance in the car park of the store in Nakorn Pathom, Uthep showed Suchart his middle finger and thumped on his car.

Enraged Suchart produced a .22 gun and shot Uthep in the right leg. He fled to a bakery and then Suchart shot four times at his pick-up.

He waited to be arrested and Pol Capt Wasan Tangtham charged him with attempted murder and weapons offences.

Police opposed bail at a first appearance in court on the grounds that the incident was serious, the defendant might flee and could be involved in witness tampering.

The court rejected this and granted bail much to the joy of family members, reported Daily News.

Uthep is a student at the Kamphaeng Saen campus of Kasetsat university.
