A bronze statue of socialist intellectual Jit Bhumisak will be unveiled early next month at the scene of his death. 

The Jit Bhumisak Foundation will unveil the statue in Sakon Nakhon province on May 5 to mark the 47th anniversary of his fatal shooting.

The statue, which was sculpted and moulded by Sunti Pichetchaiyakul, will stand at the site where he was shot dead by villagers in Ban Nong Kung in Kham Bor sub-district on May 5, 1966.
