An assumption about a previous quarrel between two educational institutes that led to the tragic incident is still a subject matter in the case, said Pol. Col. Wittawat.
On the same day, school administrators from the Sacred Heart Convent School and students’ parents went to the incident scene to pay respect to Ms. Sirada Sinprasert, a teacher who lost her life due to the shooting incident.
Tha Ruea and Thung Maha Mek police officers along with the Sacred Heart Convent school raised the level of security in the school vicinity by deploying police officers to cope with any violent situations that may occur.
The security measures include setting up a checkpoint at the only school entrance with a thorough screening procedure and using stickers for school personnel’s vehicles and QR codes. Police officers will also be stationed in the school’s vicinity from 6 AM to 5 PM.
Furthermore, the Thung Maha Mek police officers held a seminar to educate students on basic lessons to protect themselves from danger.
