Head Brig. Denny Setiadi, a member of the police's antiterrorism squad Densus 88 who was killed on Tuesday during a prison riot at the Salemba detention center in the Mobile Brigade headquarters (Mako Brimob) in Depok, West Java, had made plans to gather with his family for his 33rd birthday on May 15.

"We also planned to gather to welcome the Ramadhan month. However, God has a different plan," his twin sister Dewi Lukmiyati said on Wednesday.

When his family learned that Denny was being held hostage, “we prayed for his safety. However, at 11 a.m., we received information that he was gone," Dewi said.

Denny, who was previously with the Bekasi Police for 14 years, is survived by his wife and 2-year-old daughter.

Dewi said she and her family are asking anyone who knew Denny to forgive him for any mistakes had made.

Denny was laid to rest at Setu public cemetery in East Jakarta at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

He and four police officers who were killed during the riot have been given posthumous promotions for their service. (cal)
