Densus 88 shoots down two of three arrested terror suspects

Jakarta (ANTARA News) – The Polices anti-terror squad Densus 88 arrested three terror suspects in Depok, West Java, on Saturday, of which two died after being shot at for resisting arrest.

Brigadier General Mohammad Iqbal, polices head of the public information bureau, noted that the three, known by their initials as MM, AS, and AZW, alias MRS, were arrested from two different locations.

MM was taken into custody in Mekar Jaya in the Sukmajaya Sub-district where the police confiscated a Honda Vario motorbike and a cell phone from him.

Based on initial investigation, he was believed to be a member of the Jamaah Ansharut Daulah Bogor.

AS and AZW were caught while riding a motorcycle on Tole Iskandar Street in Sukmajaya, but they were carrying a knife and pistol and tried to resist arrest, leaving the police with no choice but to shoot them, thereby leading to their deaths.

The police confiscated a knife, FN pistol with its magazine, and 10 nine-millimeter bullets from the two, Iqbal revealed, adding that their bodies had been taken to the Said Sukanto police hospital in East Jakarta.

Based on initial investigation, AS and AZW, alias MRS, had once taken part in a semi-military training along with Bahrumsyah and Ahmaf Syarifudin in Mount Gede in 2014.

The three terror suspects were allegedly planning to launch a terror attack during the West Java regional election on June 27.

“They had intentions of giving a gift by disrupting the West Java regional election as was apparent by their heightened activity along with other groups in preparing amaliyah (action),” Iqbal added.
