Grogol Petamburan district head Achmad Sajidin has refused to respond to questions about the alleged shifting of the function of boarding houses, from dwellings to places of prostitution, in his district in West Jakarta.

“[I will discuss the matter] later. I am busy with a routine meeting,” Achmad told wartakota.tribunnews.com on Monday.

Previously, a 28-year-old prostitute who promoted herself online was found dead at Istana Laguna boarding house in Grogol Petamburan. She was reportedly murdered by a man, identified as Agustinus, 24, whom she had relations with for several days.

The incident happened last week on Thursday evening when Agustinus went to meet her at the boarding house. They were reported to have had a fight before Agustinus allegedly strangled her. (vny)
