SAMUT PRAKAN - Police have arrested three students for involvement in a horrific attack on a 16-year-old student they mistook for a member of a rival gang. 

Bank, a first year vocational student whose full name withheld, sustained multiple slash wounds to his body. The tendons in his left shoulder were cut, disabling his left arm, and six of his fingers were chopped off. Doctors were able to reattach only four of them.

Police said they apprehended Adisak, Attapon, and Seksan, all third year students at the Bangkok Institution of Technology (BIT) whose names were also withheld.
