Bangkok, the 21st of August 2010: The 23 men, all of Indian and Pakistani nationality, were arrested in a raid instigated by Bangkok’s Chokchai Police Station. Officers searched a local community in the Lat Phrao district after local residents reported an unusually large concentration of central Asian foreigners living in the location.

Major General Chantawit Ramasut, (Chief Investigator) led the contingent of some 30 officers into the small community along Soi Pradit Manutham 21, detaining over 100 foreigners of Indian and Pakistani nationality.

In the resultant investigation, 23 were found to be considerably overstaying their visas, while the remaining residents were all found to be legally staying in the Kingdom. According to reports, most of the residents are known to be selling food, snacks and fabrics in Bangkok.

Initially the 23 arrested men have been sent to the Chokchai Police Station for questioning before they will be deported back to their homeland. In addition to the arrests, officers also seized 55 motor vehicles from the community in order to check on all relevant documentation.
