Police officers allegedly attacked by military personnel in East Jakarta
The Jakarta Post
Two police officers, Second Brig. Bimo Yudho Prasetyo and Second Brig. Feri Saputra, were allegedly attacked by military officers in Cijantung, East Jakarta, on June 9.
According to Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Argo Yuwono, Bimo and Feri were attacked while buying drinks behind Cijantung Graha Mall.
“Suddenly, some people approached and attacked them,” Argo said on Sunday as quoted by tempo.co.
The victims, who identified their attackers as military officers, were examined at the National Police Hospital in Kramat Jati, East Jakarta, Argo said.
Bimo and Feri reported the incident to the military police in Cijantung.
Jakarta Military Command spokesman Lt. Col. Kristomei Sianturi said the military were still investigating whether the attackers were in fact military personnel.
The incident occurred days after two military officers, Second Sgt. Nikolas Kegomoi and Second Sgt. Darma Aji, were allegedly attacked by Mobile Brigade members at the Al Diablo billiard center on Jl. Raya Bogor in Cimanggis on June 7.
Darma died because of the attack.
Given the June 7 attack, Kristomei said there was a possibility that individuals attempt to worsen the situation but warned against pointing the finger.
“We should be wise in looking at this matter. We shouldn’t quickly conclude that the attack [on June 9] was an act of retaliation. That will worsen the situation,” Kristomei said. (cal)
