Funeral Service Held For Chin Accident Victims In Thailand

12 June 2010: A ‘combined’ Christian funeral service was held last Saturday for 9 out of 13 Chin victims of the accident in a police-car chase in Thailand on 24 May 2010.

The Saturday’s service, led by a Chin Christian pastor and attended by some Thailand-based Chins and members of Raks Thai Foundation, took place on an ‘unmarked’ plot near the Chinese cemetery in Phetchaburi town.

Of a total 13 victims, only 9 bodies, which were picked up at the scene and kept at a Buddhist Temple, were interred in a Chin traditional yet Christian way and another 4, who died after being hospitalised, were consigned to the grave by the hospital.
