Following the arrest of two suspects last weekend, police allege that a total of four people were involved in the murder of a former journalist, 43-year-old Abdullah Fithri “Dufi” Setiawan, whose body was found in a drum in Bogor, West Java.
On Sunday, police arrested a married couple, identified as Nurhadi and Sari, in connection with the murder. The police are still looking for two other suspects.
The head of the Jakarta Police Criminal Unit’s Car Investigation Subdirectorate, Adj. Comr. Rovan Richard Mahenu, said that the murder was committed at Nurhadi and Sari’s rented house in Bojong Kulur village, Gunung Putri, Bogor regency.
He said Dufi had left his own house on Nov. 16 morning. “The suspects then [allegedly] killed him the next day at their house,” Rovan said as reported by tempo.co on Thursday. Police said they found traces of blood at the house, including on a bed sheet.
Rovan claimed that robbery was the motive for killing Dufi. (ris)
