Suspect at large: Construction worker slain in Kratie

Suspect at large
KRATIE provincial police have identified a soldier wanted in connection with the murder of a construction worker who reportedly begged for his life before he was shot in the head on Monday in Snuol district’s Svay Chras commune.

Chuong Seang Hak, the provincial police chief, said the victim, 20-year-old Or Bun, was shot in the head while working at the Phou Rieng rubber plantation site. He said police are on the hunt for Yun Sina, a 37-year-old soldier who was moonlighting as a security guard for the firm.

He said police had not pinned down a motive for the shooting, but noted that the victim had been involved in a dispute with his father earlier in the day. It was unclear how Yun Sina might have got involved, he added.

Witnesses said they saw the soldier carrying a rifle while driving his motorbike, which he stopped outside the victim’s home. He shot one bullet into the ground, forcing the victim to his knees. Or Bun then reportedly begged for his life before he was killed.

“We are now burning our hands and legs trying to apprehend the suspect,” he said.
