A police major general was found dead at a petrol station in Bangkok’s Chatuchak district early Thursday morning.
Pol Maj Anan Prabpla, 48, an inspector for general affairs at Provincial Police Bureau 1, was found sitting on the floor with his back against a wall inside the PTT station on Khamphaeng Phet 2 Road.
An autopsy is to be conducted to determine the cause of death.
Anan was wearing his police uniform trousers and a white T-shirt. His Ford Escape XLS was parked nearby with the rest of his uniform and a half-empty bottle of brandy inside.
Petrol station staff told police they’d noticed Anan around noon on Wednesday sitting and lying at the spot where he died. He had asked one of them to buy him a bottle of drinking water.
His wife told police Anan has not returned home for a few days and she’d tried several times to call him.
