Nakhon Ratchasima’s (Thailand) Massacre
According to the media, the motive of the Massacre was the dispute between Jakrapanth and his commander regarding some business property benefits. It all started when Jakrapanth was talking to his commander about the property for several days.

On 8 February 2020, he stationed at the base of Surathamphithak Military Camp with the commander and two other soldiers. He suddenly attacked the commander officer and killed him and also killed the other soldiers.
After killing them, his mind was disturbed. He knew that there was a huge crowd in the Terminal 21 Korat’s Shopping mall due to Magha Puja, and he went straight to the mall by stealing the Type 11 assault rifles, M60 machine gun, and military van. A police officer and two civilians tried to stop him in the way but he killed them too and reached the mall.
On the way, he killed about 8 civilians and a policeman near the Buddhist temple. As soon as he reached the mall, he started firing indiscriminately.
