Hanoi police on Thursday
arrested six people suspected of attempting to kill three others and causing a
public disorder earlier this week.
Initial investigation showed
that Nguyen Bich Thuy, 32, led a group of more than ten people on a chase after
Bach Thanh Phong, 34, and two others at around half-past midnight on Monday from
Tu Liem District to Quoc Oai District. Four vehicles were involved in the
When they arrived at Quoc Oai's
Ngoc Liep Commune, Thuy's gang pushed Phong's car off the street. Phong's group
were injured but they got out of the car and escaped, according to police.
Thuy's gang later shot bullets
into Phong's car, a black Honda Civic, which was found on the Lang-Hoa Lac
Highway the day after with blood and two shotguns, three swords and eight knives
inside, prompting police to launch an investigation into the case.
Police said the case may involve
conflict between the two groups over loans. Investigators said around 20 people
had been involved in the fight.
So far Thuy and five of his
people together with five cars have been taken into custody, while others,
including Phong and his people, were still at large.
