Greater Jakarta: Vandals attack Transjakarta shelter

JAKARTA: The Transjakarta shelter serving the Pinang Ranti-Pluit route in front of the National Narcotics Agency (BNN) building on JL. MT Haryono in Cawang, East Jakarta, was vandalized on Sunday night.

“The incident occurred at 7:30 p.m. and although there were passengers at the shelter, the incident did not claim any victims because the vandals broke the glass near the ticket box,” Kramat Jati Police chief Comr. Handini said on Monday. “Witnesses heard gunshots but when we examined the crime scene, we didn’t find any bullet projectiles,” he said as quoted by kompas.com.

The police were still investigating the case and searching for the perpetrators. Similar incidents took place at the same corridor, which served the Pinang Ranti-Pluit route in July, August and November this year. The Transjakarta BRT Management Authority had previously stated its plan to install CCTVs in every Transjakarta shelter in the city to prevent any similar incidents from recurring.
