His passport was found to be genuine, after investigations into its authenticity, said Thai police spokesman Prawut Thavornsiri during a press conference. However, the travel document belonging to another suspect, who introduced himself to police as Adem Karadak from Turkey, was a counterfeit.

Earlier, police took Meiraili to the scene of the explosion at Bangkok’s Erawan shrine and to Hua Lampong station to reconstruct the crime scene.

The police spokesman said the reconstruction provided a clearer picture to investigators and helped to support the ongoing investigation.
