The two wooden lodgings were however badly damaged by the bomb explosions.
Police said that as one group of suspected militants opened fire at a market in Bacho district apparently to distract police’s attention from the police station where another group was moving under the cover of darkness toward two lodgings in the police station’s compound.
Pol Lance Corporal Siam Temteh and Pol Lance Corporal Pannakait Srinakitja were resting in the lodgings unaware that the suspected militants were about to launch the attack.
