Kanchanaburi police chief transferred over role in Bt30m lottery scandal

KANCHANABURI’S police chief has been transferred out of his post over a lottery-cheating scandal, giving weight to widespread speculation that some state officials had allegedly colluded in the plot to grab the Bt30-million prize from the legitimate winner.

These speculations, which reportedly rely on some inside information, have portrayed Kanchanaburi’s police commander Pol Maj-General Sutthi Puangpikul as an alleged key accomplice in the plot since at least November 28 last year. Sutthi was seen as taking sides with Preecha Kraikruan, a teacher who claimed to have bought five winning lottery tickets but accidentally dropped them at a market in Kanchanaburi. Preecha has accused retired police lieutenant Charoon Wimul of cashing in on the tickets he had dropped. Charoon said Sutthi had instructed him to negotiate with Preecha at Sutthi’s home.
