A Metropolitan Police investigation got underway today (Thursday) following the torching of at least five police kiosks in Bangkok during the 9pm-4am curfew.

Teams from the Central Police Forensic Division were dispatched to the scenes, after the blazes were extinguished by firemen, to look for clues to help police track down the arsonists, who police believe belong to the same group.

Police said that the incidents took place at between 2.25 – 2.54 am, with the police kiosk at Saphan Kwai intersection being torched, followed by four more at Pradipat, Si Ayutthaya, Mitsamphan and Pibul Wattana intersections.

Police said that most of the kiosks sustained some damage, except the kiosk at Pradipat intersection which was heavily damaged.

Police said that no officers were injured adding, however, that police have been checking footage from CCTV systems at the scenes.
