Police found two guns used to kill an Indian man and believed murderers already left the country.
A source said police retrieved the guns from the sea near a beach close to the crime scene. One is a 9mm CZ semi-automatic pistol and the other is 9mm Walther automatic pistol.
Both guns were registered weapons and belonged to a Thai in uniform. Pol Gen Suwat Jangyodsuk, commissioner-general of the Royal Thai Police, will elaborate on the matter at the Provincial Police Region 8 headquarters in Phuket.
Investigators said on the condition of anonymity that the two guns were used to murder Jimi Singh Sandhu in front of a seaside villa of a hotel on Wiset Road in Rawai sub-district of Muang Phuket district on Feb 4.
They said the murderers were two Canadians who left the country on Feb 6. However, police would seek warrants for their arrest. (TNA)
