“Famous” Indian Journalist claims to have been assaulted, extorted and robbed by business partners in Pattaya

A journalist from India was reportedly assaulted, stripped, photographed and blackmailed in Pattaya by his compatriots, according to a complaint filed with police. 
The victim, whose identity has been withheld, lodged a complaint at Muang Pattaya Police Station at 1am on Sunday.

He told police that some Indians  had contacted him under the pretext of hiring him to take pictures for a tour company with a plan to promote it in the Indian market.

Taking up the offer, he checked into a hotel in the Bang Lamung district of Chon Buri province to prepare himself for the work. But on Friday night those Indians assaulted and stripped him and after photographing him threatened to blackmail him.

“They threatened to send those pictures and even video clips to social-media pages that are well-known in India if I didn’t give them money. I am famous there. So, I had to give them the 200,000 rupees [nearly Bt100,000] I had in my possession,” the victim said.

The attackers allegedly also demanded that the 40-year-old victim sign two cheques for them.

After he gave in, they fled the scene.

The victim, after thinking things over, decided to call a friend for help. The friend is married to a Thai woman and she took him to the police station to lodge the complaint.

Police vowed to investigate the case and nail down the culprits. Police have also stated they believe there may be more to the story and want to hear the other individuals side.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
