Brothers fight over ‘ojek’ passenger in West Jakarta
The Jakarta Post
Matdodi, 55, an ojek (motorcycle taxi) driver in Tanjung Duren, West Jakarta, reported his family members, including his younger brother Basir, to police for allegedly fighting him over a passenger.
"The incident was triggered by a quarrel over a passenger at an ojek stop near Grogol Station in West Jakarta," Tanjung Duren Police crimes unit head Adj. Comr. Rensa Sastika told kompas.com.
Rensa said on Monday morning, while Matdodi and Basir were waiting for customers, a passenger approached Basir, and the latter agreed to drive him.
Matdodi then told Basir that it was his turn to pick up a passenger. Basir got angry and challenged his brother to a fight, which Matdodi rejected.
Basir then went home and allegedly asked three family members, Jaka, Kodir and Ijah, to join him to fight Matdodi.
The four headed back to the location and started to attack Matdodi. Jaka reportedly swung a machete, injuring Matdodi's right arm.
Matdodi escaped from the scene and was allegedly chased by the group. They only stopped pursuing him when more people became involved and tried to help Matdodi.
The four alleged perpetrators remain at large, Rensa said. (fac/wit)
