Five foreigners – three English speaking men and a Burmese maid and her husband – were arrested by the Thai police who raided a suspected passport forging operation in Bangkok.
During the raid, police found a dead man’s body which was cut into six pieces, in a freezer, along with quantities of fake passports, drugs and guns.
“His body was cut with a sharp object into six pieces, put in a black bag and brought into the freezer,” the police chief told reporters. He added that the suspects were being questioned at a police station in south-west Bangkok.
Thai police added that during the raid, one of the suspect’s fired at one officer, while turning from a safe he was opening.
The officers said that they have no idea who the man was and what links he had with the forging operation.
A correspondent from BBC said that the trade in forged and stolen passports is a big business in Thailand.
The trade was highlighted after the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 two years ago, he adds, when two Iranian men on board were found to have been travelling on stolen passports bought in Thailand.
