there were bloodstains leading from the roof
An Indian man was found dead with his throat cut and a compatriot suffering from knife wounds on a rooftop in Bangkok, Thailand, sparking a murder investigation.
The incident happened at a six-storey apartment building in Bangkok’s Bang Sue district on the night of Monday, June 22, 2020.
Police and emergency responders arrived at the scene and found the deceased, aged in his 30s, on the rooftop deck of the building.
It was discovered that the deceased was a resident of the building.
Police said that he had his throat slit. He also had a deep wound to his left temple and two knife wounds to the left-hand side of his chest.
The unidentified victim was found lying face down and police found no documents on his body.
Officers discovered the knife near the body. There was also a bottle of alcohol and one black canvas shoe nearby.
It was reported that there were bloodstains leading from the roof to an area in front of a room on the third floor of a building.
Police approached the room and found another Indian man lying injured in front.
The man, later identified as Shyam Sagar Singh, aged 35, had a severe laceration to his right ankle. He was taken to Vajira Hospital.
Police spoke to a female tenant living on the third floor.
She told officers that she heard a loud noise coming from upstairs. She thought that someone had knocked something over so she did not pay much attention to it.
However, a short while later, there was a knock on her door.
The woman opened it and saw Shyam bleeding heavily from his ankle. He ended up staying in the room opposite hers.
At that point, the woman alerted the police. After they arrived, she later found out that another man had been found dead on the roof.
The woman revealed that the deceased and Shyam lived with each other in the building but did not suspect that a fight broke out between them as she never heard them arguing.
Bangkok Police launched an investigation. They reviewed the CCTV and footage showed a third Indian man arriving at the building shortly before the incident.
The man was later spotted leaving the building.
Police have identified the man as a person of interest and they are looking to question him.
