The Jakarta Police will question singer Maia Estianty regarding a fatal crash that involved her youngest son, Abdul Qodir Jaelani alias Dul, 13. Six people died and nine others were injured.
'A summoning letter has been sent and questioning is scheduled for today,' said deputy traffic chief, Adj. Sr. Comr. Sambodo, in Jakarta on Thursday as quoted by Antara news agency.
Sambodo refused to elaborate on the questioning session, set to take place at the Jakarta Police's traffic headquarters.
Maia's ex-husband, Ahmad Dhani, had been summoned by the police on Wednesday evening. Dhani claimed that he did not know and had never allowed Dul to drive a car.
'I knew that he [Dul] could drive a car only after the accident occurred,' said Dhani.
Dul was behind the wheel when his Lancer Mitsubishi collided with two other vehicles, Daihatsu Gran Max and Toyota Avanza, at the 8-kilometer point of the Jagorawi toll road, on Sunday.
Dul, who was traveling on the Jakarta-bound lane, allegedly lost concentration when his car struck a road separator before it jumped into a different lane and hit two other vehicles. (ebf)
