Military police run down in car: officials

Two military police officers in Mondulkiri province’s Sen Monorom town were run down on Sunday by a car carrying six men, officials said yesterday.

Sak Sarang, provincial military police commander, said the two officers, Chheav Samnang and Oub Sopheaktra, both in their 20s, died in Spean Meanchey commune at 1:30am on Sunday.

He said the two had argued with a group of six men in a nightclub not long before they were killed.

“The group saw them taking the motorbike and crashed into them,” he said.

Five men in the car were arrested and another man in the nightclub was questioned. Police are looking for the driver, who escaped.

“The arrested [men] faulted the driver,” Sarang said.

Mok Chay Hean, provincial military police officer, said the suspects were detained at the provincial military police station and would be sent to court today.
