BANGKOK: Thai police have confirmed contacting their Malaysian counterparts on an allegation that a Malaysian mobile phone was used in one of southern Thai's bombing incidents, several days ago.

Its chief, Gen Chakthip Chaijinda said the Thai police had received good cooperation from the Malaysia police on the matter.

"We have contacted our (Malaysian) counterparts on the matter and have received good cooperation from them (Malaysian police)," he told the media after attending a security meeting today.

He was asked about a media report two days ago, which had alleged one of the mobile phones used to detonate a bomb in southern Thai recently, had a Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission's (MCMC) serial number.

The mobile phone, according to the report, came from Malaysia and the Thai police had handed over the phone's serial number to its counterparts to trace the origin of the device.

To a question whether that particular mobile phone was used in other criminal activities, Chakhthip declined comment, saying it was highly confidential information.
