Daily News reported on the case of a man revealed in social media as an individual with "rights" to carry a gun in public and enjoy police escorts around the city.

The story broke when the man - who has not been named but is described as 'hi-so' - posted pictures of himself with a gun in a vehicle. There was also a video of him being escorted by motorcycle riding police along a road that appeared to be in Bangkok.

In a post it was said that this facility had been granted him many times.

When Daily News Online went to check, the picture and video had been taken down.

They were contacted by a member of the public who appeared to know the individual asking what gave him the right to carry a weapon and enjoy police protection.

Now the office of the spokesman of the National Police Bureau is taking an interest and investigating what is going on.
