The XVII/Cenderawasih Military Command (Kodam) chief Maj. Gen. Christian Zebua said Friday that both military and police would hunt for those who shot a soldier in Ilu market, Puncak Jaya regency, in Papua.

'€œWe will seek and destroy those who are armed and disrupt public security, perpetrate shootings and disturb the government,'€ he said on Friday.

'€œThe military and police will keep hunting down assailants because shooting innocent people violates human rights.'€

Chief Sgt. Wandi Ahmad was shot on Thursday and his condition was improving after being treated at Marthen Indey Army Hospital in Jayapura, the Kodam chief spokesman Col. Lismer Lumban Siantar said.

Meanwhile, the body of David, a public minivan driver who was shot dead on Thursday, had been sent to his home in Wamena, Jayawijaya regency.

David was shot at 3:30 p.m., 5 hours after unknown assailants shot Wandi.
