The National Police’s Densus 88 counterterrorism squad apprehended three terror suspects on Jl. Kampung Bugis, Kenali Besar, Jambi, on Monday.

Led by Sr.Comr. Ketut, six Densus 88 personnel arrested a suspected terrorist in a house on Jl.Kampung Bugis on Monday afternoon.

They continued their operation and arrested a married couple at a house in the same location later in the evening. The couple was taken into custody without resistance.

Locals said the activities of the three suspected terrorists had aroused suspicions.

“They were reclusive. They had been living here for around four months. They moved from Bulian in Batanghari regency, Jambi,” said a local, who identified himself as Edi, on Tuesday.

He further said one of the three suspects ran a laptop service. “Residents here did not know their identities. They never interacted with their neighbors,” said Edi.

Jambi Police chief Adj.Sr.Comr. Fauzi Dalimunthe said only one of the three suspects would be processed further. “His initial is M,” he said.  During the raid at his house, the police confiscated several CPUs, laptops and other goods as evidence, he added. (ebf)
