The Jakarta Post
A truck transporting garbage from Jakarta to the Bantar Gebang waste-treatment site in Bekasi, West Java, was attacked by a group of unidentified individuals on Thursday night, marking the latest in a series of disturbances to the dump trucks.
No injury was reported in the incident that took place at 11:25 p.m., but the front windshield of the truck was smashed after a rock was thrown at it, tribunnews.com reported on Friday.
“We have reported the case to the Bantar Gebang Police,” Jakarta Environment Agency deputy head Ali Maulana Hakim said.
The attack follows similar incidents, the latest of which occurred in July. The agency has recorded at least nine similar cases.
“I hope the police can immediately arrest the perpetrators, because such incidents pose a real threat to our drivers,” Ali said. (fac)
