3 Bangladeshi Rotarians’ disgraceful Pattaya luxury with hooker

Bangladeshi dies, two others in a coma following drugging and robbery in Central Pattaya

Pattaya One 12th May 2012

A tourist from Bangladeshis dead and two others are in a Coma following a suspected drugging and robbery case.

The three men were sharing a room at the Bella Express Hotel in Central Pattaya where they had checked in on Thursday with the intention of checking-out on Friday Night and were found by their Thai Guide who had planned to take three men to Bangkok where they had earlier attended a Rotary International Conference.

The guide realized that two were unconscious and a third, Mr. Mizanur Rahman aged 54 had passed away.

Evidence of a disturbance and forced access to the room safe were collated by Police who were called in to investigate the case.

Hotel staff indicated that the men had taken a Thai woman back to their room earlier in the night who had left some hours later. The suspect is now being sought by Police before she has a chance to strike again.

The Police would like us to remind you that taking strangers back to your Hotel room, for whatever reason, carries significant risks which can lead to the loss of valuables or in extreme cases, loss of life, which has occurred in this case.

3 Bangladeshi nationals were drugged by a Pattaya prostitute whom they brought to have group sex with in a Pattaya hotel. Later the three Rotarians were found drugged. One of them had died and two were in a coma. The hooker got away with their belongings. Pattaya police is on the case.

Pattaya, May 12, 2012 [PDN] Pol. Lt. Col. Samran Kamwattana, Pattaya police reported that 3 foreigners suspected of being drugged were discovered in room # 427 on the 4th floor of Bella Express Hotel Pattaya 425/9 Middle Pattaya road, opposite of Maewilai Market, Banglamung.

Pol. Col. Thammanoon Mankong, and Pol. Lt.Col.Supachai Puykaewkam plus Pattaya police station officers arrived at the crime scene with a crowd of foreigners outside the room.

Inside the double room with an extra bed they found a dead body: Mr. Rahman Mizanur 54-years-old Bangladeshi, lying on the on his side on the bed, wearing white tank and a blue and white striped sarong. His clothes, the bed and the floor, were soiled with excrement and the room stank.

There were many pieces of luggage all forced open. Clothes and stuff were scattered all over the room.

The small safe had also been forced open. It was empty. In the bathroom, there were 10 empty beer cans. The police also found asthma medicine, and other unknown medicines plus many medicine vials in luggage of the deceased.

 

Upon information based on the evidence found in the room the police concluded: 3 victims, one of them was dead, and the others were in a coma, as if they had been drugged.

A hotel staff had called Pattaya Memorial Hospital before the police came, the two unconcious victims were identified as: Mr. Sanjid Saha, 54-years-old, and Mr. Rashid Harunur, 52-years-old Bangladeshi. The police took pictures, collected the evidence and inspected the corpse but found no trace of violence. The body was sent for autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Upon questioning the Thai guide, he said that he had brought the 20 Bangladeshi tourists from the Rotary International Convention, at Impact, Muangthong Thani in Bangkok. After the convention, the 3 Bangladeshis, travelled to Pattaya, checked in at the hotel on May 10 at 16:00, and they would check out on May 12.

In the morning of May 11, the guide called all the Bangladeshi tourists to have breakfast and to go for sightseeing, but the 3 did not show up.

Later the tour guide found out from the hotel staff, that there was a foul smell coming out from the room.

They knocked on the door. No answer. The hotel staff opened the door. Inside they found them one dead. Two unconscious with saliva coming out of their mouths. The two comatose victims were taken to the hospital and the police was informed.

Pol. Lt.Col. Supachai Puykaewkam, said that the 3 Bangladeshis might had been drugged and robbed. The hotel staff said that, at 01:00 of May 11 they saw the victims came with Thai woman they thought was a prostitute. As a routine the hotel staff kept her ID card. The woman was identified as Miss Porntip Taweeting 20-years-old, address: house # 59, Moo 7, tambon Yangwai, Kornsawan, Chaiyapoom.

At 04:00 the woman called to ask if there was a laundry service. The hotel staff said no. The woman said that she needed to have her clothes washed in South Pattaya. She would come back. She left the hotel with a bag of clothes but forgot to bring her ID.

She did not return.

At first the police assumes that the victims brought the prostitute to have group sex in the room. But instead of group sex they were drugged by a powerful hypnotic/ tranquilizer mixed with their beer. After they passed out, she searched through their belongings and disappeared.

Mr. Rahman might have had some underlying illnesses causing his sudden death. The two other became deeply unconscious.

The police checked the CCTV footage to find more evidence and clues.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Miss Porntip Taweetin, the 20-year-old prostitute.

Pattaya’s Tourist Drugging Epidemic

Sleeping Capsules

Naivety, over-confidence, chauvinism, as well as a lack of care and plain and simple drunkenness all contribute to the epidemic of tourist druggings in Pattaya.

The recent murder of a Bangladeshi tourist by a drug-dishing whore reminds me that over the past 18 months I have been collecting stories about the drugging and robbing of tourists in the city.

Unfortunately, crime statistics in Pattaya are a joke, and even if they were compiled, you couldn’t believe them, given the desperate desire to hush up serious crimes against foreigners in the town.

But some cases have been reported in the local press, which I reckon really are the tip of the sleeping tablet. It wouldn’t surprise me to find at least one tourist-drugging a night takes place somewhere in the city.

Over the last couple of years, some interesting things stand out in the cases which have been reported.

Nationalities

Although the most recent, tragic case involved three Bangladeshis, one of whom died, and many reports involve Indian groups and Arabs, the nationalities of victims is a very mixed bag.

Since 2010 they have included Indians, Germans, Danes, Swiss, Russians, Jordanians, Turks, Belgians, Omanis, Pakistanis, Iranians, Asians and even a Thai on Thai drugging.

While most of the druggings take place in the victims’ rooms, there were a couple of intriguing ones.

Bus Station

Two Pakistanis were drugged in Pattaya bus station in broad daylight as they waited for a bus to Bangkok. A friendly Thai woman bought them coke (the drink). They felt drowsy and were unable to stop her stealing all their possessions and making off.

Police said she was a repeat offender.

Thai on Thai

Another one stands out, suggesting Thai on Thai druggings could also be commonplace.

In July 2011, a Thai hotel porter, having fallen in love with a co-worker, took her to a noodle shop, where, in fine Thai fashion, he decided to woo her by spiking her drink with drugs so he could have his wicked way more easily.

The noodle shop owner prevented her drugged-up seduction by calling the police.

I’m (Not) Lovin’ It

Then there was the case of a Canadian/Iranian who pulled his lovelies in a Pattaya McDonalds and took them back to his hotel in Naklua. Surprise surprise, next day he was considerably poorer for the experience, although in this case the police did arrest one of the women in her home town.

Most common method

The most common MO is usually sleeping tablets crushed in booze. I have no idea which ones they would use, but they must be tasteless, odourless and strong, or the victims must be mostly drunk and not aware of what their drink tastes like.

Perhaps it’s GBH (Roofie).

It’s not just in the booze

One Swiss victim was given chocolate laced with drugs by a woman he picked up in North Pattaya, who then scarpered with a huge haul.

Another Swiss, in South Pattaya in 2011 was drugged when his lady of the night bought and drugged a coffee from a convenience store. He had a few sips then collapsed.

In 2011 a drowsy Turkish tourist presented himself at Pattaya police station saying his female companion had drugged a glass of water during the night, after he drank it, he fell unconscious.

Beach Road

Beach Road figures in many drugging stories.

The “glass of water” victim above picked up his lovely on Beach Road, and in 2010 there was an unusual case of an Asian tourist drugged and crashed out on Beach Road who was robbed by three Thai men in Tourist Police Volunteer uniforms.

In August 2011, an Indian ticked all three ‘No No” boxes by taking a ladyboy off Beach Road, late at night.

The appropriately named Mr Bagga said he had had a beer to lose his inhibitions, but after that he collapsed and lost a lot more than his inhibitions that night.

He then gave the police 24 hours to solve the case and get his possessions back before he flew back to India! Proving he hadn’t been here long.

Walking Street

It‘s not only on Beach Road you have to be careful, but also on Walking Street.

A Russian picked up a woman on Walking Street who laced his beer with sleeping tablets and ransacked his Jomtien hotel room before doing a runner.

In July 2011, an Indian tourist met a woman in a Bali Hai disco, took her back to his room where he “consumed many cans of beer” and woke up drugged and robbed next day.

The hotel staff had failed to take a copy of her ID card and the security cameras were not working (both of these lapses regularly crop up in drugging reports).

Another victim, a Belgian, picked up a freelancer outside a 7:11 on Walking Street and woke up 20 hours later, substantially poorer as a result of his drink being spiked. Fortunately his apartment had CCTV, although whether many of these women are caught must be open to doubt, once they do a runner back home and the tourist returns to his country.

Getting the dose right

Obviously some practice is necessary, as an unfortunate Dane discovered when he was drugged by a Thai woman he’d taken to a beer bar on Walking Street last year. Police found purple residue which was crushed-up sleeping tablets in his glass, but not being a pharmacist the woman had administered too much and her victim had crashed out in the bar instead of back at the hotel room, and as a result she was caught.

Turning The Tables on Gang Bangers

Many Indians, single, in pairs and even in gangs fall victim time and again to lone Thai women. Perhaps they possess a naïve and  chauvinistic belief that one woman could never put them all down on her own.

Wrong.

The Pattaya record for mass drugging has to be in Diamond Hotel a couple of years ago when a Thai woman drugged FIVE Indians and robbed them all.

At the time they received little sympathy on message boards in Pattaya.

A Thai drugged two Indians in the Beverley Hotel a while ago, even soaping the ring of one of their fingers.

In the latest report of the murder of a Bangladeshi tourist, three Bangladeshis took one Thai woman back to their hotel. She drugged them all, killing one and hospitalizing the other two, proving how dangerous this practice is.

As the hotel took  her ID card, there is a chance she may be caught, but I suspect cases of drugged and robbed tourists will be with us in Pattaya for a very long time to come.
