Military police officials busted over shootings

Two high-ranking military police officials have been arrested in Phnom Penh over separate shooting incidents.

Military police Colonel Ke Sim allegedly came home drunk on Monday night and fired his gun three times to wake his wife to open the door, Sen Sok district police chief Mak Hong said yesterday.

In a separate case, Meanchey district military police on Sunday arrested Buth Samnang, a one-star military police general, for shooting his K-59 pistol once, according to an official who declined to be named.

“When a dog was barking outside, he ran out of his house and shot the ground,” he said, adding that Samnang was not intoxicated. Several military police officials declined to comment on both incidents, and the spokesman could not be reached.
