Police looking for an Indian national suspected of killing and dismembering a Burmese man have enlisted the help of the Indian Embassy in Bangkok. The man is thought to have flown out of Bangkok last Saturday.
The dismembered body of Ay Se Kye was discovered in a freezer in the Bang Khun Thian district of Bangkok on Sunday, January 21. Officers were alerted to the discovery by another Burmese man, named as My Ya Aye in a Thai PBS World report.
My Ya Aye told police that he and 3 other workers from Myanmar were hired by 23 year old Indian national, Sundaravel Pragadeesh Kumar. The workers had to pay Kumar “procedural fees” of 22,000 baht each before they could be hired. Kumar then brought the men to a building on January 17. Two days later, he picked up 4 of them to take them to work, leaving Ay Se Kye behind.
My Ya Aye says he spoke with his friend at around 10.30pm that night. He later had a video call with Kumar, who he says appeared to be sweating and then suddenly ended the call.
My Ya Aye says he was then unable to contact either man and two days later, on Sunday, January 21, went to the building where his friend had been. The building was locked, so the Burmese man asked the owner to break the lock. Inside, he discovered his friend’s dismembered body in a freezer on the third floor.
After alerting police, officers who arrived at the scene found an electric saw, two butches’ knives covered in blood, along with traces of blood in the lavatory, which is where police believe the victim’s body was dismembered.
Police have since discovered that Kumar left Bangkok on an 8.50pm flight on January 20, headed to Chennai, in India.
