A fact-finding panel has been set up at the order of Prachuab Khiri Khan governor to probe the cutting down of a Bodhi tree at a temple in this southern province which was planted by the late King Bhumibol about 60 years ago.

 

Meanwhile, officials from relevant agencies headed by the provincial governor, Mr Pallop Singhaseni, held a meeting on Thursday at the provincial hall to discuss ways and means to rehabilitate the tree which was chopped off of all its branches and trunk, leaving the stump on the ground of Wat Thammikaram on Chong Krachok mountain.

 

The governor said that the cutting of the Bodhi tree planted by the late king some 60 years ago has saddened many people in the province.
