AN UNDERTAKER has been arrested for allegedly assisting five abortion clinics to dispose some 200 aborted foetuses.
Suthep Cha-bangbon, 46, an undertaker of Phai Ngern Temple on Soi Trokchan 20 in Bang Kholaem district, has been arrested, a police source said.
Initially, Suthep claimed that he was the one who spotted the aborted foetuses and alerted police.
He claimed he did not know how the foetues had ended up being hidden in one of temporary body storage of the temple pending cremation.
But after he was taken to Wat Phayakrai police station for questioning, he admitted that he was hired by five abortion clinics to dispose the foetuses.
