This is the shocking moment an angry Buddhist monk slaps a woman – after she told him off for SPITTING inside her bus.
The monk in orange robes had been traveling on the mini van passenger bus in Roi Et province, north-east Thailand, yesterday afternoon.
But after arriving at the destination the woman – wife of the driver – confronted the monk after she claims to have caught him spit on the floor of the van.
He is recorded striking her face as she falls back before her husband jumps in and punches him in retaliation.
Bosses at the travel company have now suspended the couple and ordered them not to cause fights. The woman has also been fined 5000 Thai baht.
Activist ‘Dr K’ – who uses a pseudonym for locals to leak him sensitive material – said: ‘’The woman was angry at the monk because she saw him spit inside the van. She started arguing with him about this.
‘’Her husband is the driver and he got involved after the monk struck his wife. He attacked him and won the fight.
‘’The van company has suspended both husband and wife as a lesson to never again cause the fighting.
‘’They said that the husband should have stayed in the middle and not taken sides in the argument.
‘’Monks highly revered and he denied spitting.”
