SONGKHLA, Oct 4 (Bernama) -- Security has been stepped up to prevent bombing of the railway line in Thailand's southern province of Songkhla after Sunday's explosion near the railway killed two police officers and critically injured a defence volunteer, the Thai News Agency (TNA) reported Monday.
It said Songkhla police chief Maj. Gen. Paitoon Patsophon met urgently with superintendents of all police stations and 100 police officers from a special unit in the province to upgrade the provincial security plan following the Sunday's remote-controlled bomb blast in Chana district.
Four districts, including Chana, Nathawee, Thepha and Sabayoi--adjacent to the three southernmost provinces of Pattani Narathiwat and Yala will be under heightened security, especially during the Muslim's fasting month of Ramadan.
The police now are questioning witnesses and gathering additional information regarding the suspected Sunday bomb-planters.
According to TNA, the police declined to disclose further details.
Late reports indicate that the defence volunteer who was critically injured by shrapnel in the blast is now in stable condition though he remains nder close supervision of doctors and nursing staff.
