News is that the govt or developer want to redevelop the land where the market is sitting on now. Those who got roughed up were those who refused to move.

it was in the news.
actually the lease holder was undercontract to develop the place properly.
he wanted to.
but the stall holders refused to move.
some legal complication.
both sides say they got legal petition.
so some one must have got the mob to muscle in and destroy the place.

but a much better chatuchak may rise from this.

There are a couple of stalls with amazing interior decor stuff! Gosh, I hope it's for the better. One thing for sure, upon redevelopment, we can expect the prices to go up (again). A few stallholders were lamenting to me how their rental kept increasing.

Maybe they will build a "Chatuchak The Shopping Mall"? with aircon and clean toilets and all those comfort stuffs.
Then things won't be cheap anyone. The place, except for the variety of goods, will just be the same as MBK or Siam Square.
