Security operations are currently underway to rescue people taken hostage by the terrorists who descended on the building.

Reports have also indicated several people have lost their lives during the attack which was punctuated by heavy gunfire and explosions.

Eyewitnesses claim they saw about four people in military fatigues near DusitD2 hotel moments before the commotions.

Recce Squad is evacuating people from buildings adjacent to DusitD2 are currently underway even though one person has been confirmed dead.

 It is not clear if or not they were part of the attackers, clients or workers at DusitD2 hotel.

The police managed to isolate one vehicle believed to have been used by the attackers to access the area.

It is claimed one of the attackers hurled a grenade at the vehicles in the parking sparking the fire which consumed the three cars right in front of the hotel entrance. The area remains cordoned off even as police advises motorists to use alternative routes for easy rescue operations.
