PHUKET: A hotel employee in Patong was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly taking part in a gang attack that led to a death in Phitsanulok five years ago.

Danai Thonglaima, 35, is alleged to have joined in a roadside attack in May 2008, after which he fled to Phuket and lived a secret life.

Officers from Phitsanulok joined with Patong Police to make the arrest at the hotel where Mr Danai worked, said Patong Police Superintendent Chiraphat Pochanaphan.
