Student activist Rangsiman Rome was arrested in Bangkok on Sunday and sent to hear charges of campaigning against the charter referendum in Samut Prakan province.

Chana Songkhram police detained the New Democracy Movement member on Tao Nao Road near the Oct 14 Memorial, where he was to attend a fund-raising event organised by the group to help political prisoners.

The Thammasat University student was taken to the police station and later sent to Bang Sao Thong police station in Samut Prakan's Bang Sao Thong district, the group said on its Facebook account.
