One killed as Thai cops raid drug dealers’
THAI police shot dead a suspected meth trafficker and arrested 30 more during a raid on a party to reward drug dealers for hitting sales targets, police said yesterday.
A gunfight erupted after several revellers tried to flee the late-night bash held at an upscale resort near Khao Yai, a popular national park northeast of Bangkok.
A 24-year-old man wanted for drug trafficking was killed and one police officer was injured during a streetside shootout, said Rawat Klinkesorn, the commander of Thailand’s Narcotics Suppression Bureau.
“Based on police intelligence we discovered they were holding a thank you party at this resort so we launched a raid,” he told AFP.
