The family of Sela Ramdona, a soccer fan who died in April, is demanding police clarification over the sluggish progress of the investigation into her death.

Sela, 23, died after attending the screening of a soccer match between Persija Jakarta and Singapore’s Tampines Rovers in Kebayoran Lama, South Jakarta. 

Sela's sister, Tusilawati, said her family was still in the dark about what caused her death, adding that the police have yet to reveal any information. 

"We hope to find the truth," Tusilawati said at the South Jakarta Police headquarters on Monday as quoted by kompas.com. She was accompanied by her lawyer and other Persija fans, known as Jakmania. 

Tusilawati added that Sela's boyfriend had informed them that she had died in a traffic accident. However, there had been no signs of injuries on Sela's body, she said. 

South Jakarta Police criminal division chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Stefanus Tamuntuan said the investigation was ongoing. 

He added that the police might hold an autopsy on Sela's body if necessary. (fac)
