More violent activities in Bangkok are expected, Department of Special Investigation (DSI) chief said.

DSI Chief Tharit Pengdit said after a bomb exploded on Sunday in front of the Royal Turf Club in Bangkok's Dusit district and an explosion opposite a grocery store in Bangkok's Yannawa district. The explosion on Friday injured two female teenage students and a man.

Tharit said unrest would continue in Bangkok as ill-intentioned people continue to incite unrest. However, he said he cannot say what form of violent activities is likely to take place, Bangkok Post reports.

The DSI has not requested police to take the bomb attack cases as a special case under the DSI, he said.

The authority has step up security measures across Bangkok by keeping 24-hour alert on 454 spots across Bangkok since September 3.

Although the latest chronic protest in Bangkok by the anti- government red-shirt protesters, killing 91 people and injuring nearly 2,000, has ended for almost 4 months, Bangkok is still under the state of emergency which prohibits assembly of more than five people as the government claimed that bombing attacks are still going on.
