Police stop Dhammakaya followers from trying to break into the temple

About 300 Dhammakaya monks and lay followers tried to break through police cordon guarding Gate 5 of the temple to join those inside the temple.

It was reported that at about 8.20 pm, about 300 lay followers led by monks marked to Gate 5 to confront the police guarding the gate in an attempt to break into the temple.

Police blocked them from entry, telling them that the temple has been declared a restricted zone that no one can get into without prior permission from the authorities.

The stand-off ended shortly before 9 pm when the Dhammakaya followers retreated to keep vigil just opposite the police cordon.
