JAKARTA: The police say they have yet to find any bullet in the body of Angga bin Dharmawan, 12, who was allegedly shot to death on Friday in the Ogan Ilir land conflict in South Sumatra.
The police are still investigating the case.
“So far we have decided that the boy was wounded by a sharp object. We couldn’t say he was shot because we have found no bullet projectiles in his body,” National Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Agus Rianto said on Monday as quoted by kompas.com.
The police have also yet to decide whether Angga was shot by a rubber bullet from Police Mobile Brigade (Brimob) personnel. Agus added that his team was quite far from the boy’s location.
Angga, 12, was allegedly shot near his ear and died immediately during a clash between the residents of Limbang Jaya I, II and III in Tanjung Batu district, Ogan Ilir regency, South Sumatra, and Brimob personnel. Four others were reportedly injured by the shots.
