The Government has intensified security measures at several significant government buildings, commercial and business areas, tourist spots in the capital following a spate of bomb explosions in the past few months.
Putting under maximum security is the Government House where elite troops from the Lopburi-based Special Warfare Centre were deployed in the compound.
Yesterday 18 special warfare soldiers from the Ranger Battalion of the Special Warfare Centre inspected the area around the Government House before drawing a plan to deploy soldiers to provide security at the Government House.
The inspection focused at the gate because it was very close to the Khlong Padung Krung Kasem market which was crowded with shoppers.
Meanwhile security measures were beefed up at hospitals near Victory Monument after the director of the National Cancer Institute disclosed that he has received warning letter three days before Phramongkutklao hospital bombing.
The letter warned of a possible terrorist attack, targeted at hospitals near Victory Monument.
The institute has beefed up the security measures and checking the CCTV cameras which found that all 80 CCTV cameras have worked normally.
Adjacent hospitals including the Rajavithi Hospital and Queen Sirikit National Institute of Child Health have also stepped up the security measures and strictly screening people who entered the hospitals.
