InfoSAWIT, PONTIANAK – The shooting happened in palm oil plantation. Some officers of Mobile Brigade shot the people in palm oil plantation of PT Arrtu Estate Kemuning, Sub district of Matan Hilir Selatan, District of Ketapang, West Kalimantan Province.

Chief of Public Relation West Kalimantan Police, Commissioner Jansen Avitus Panjaitan said, there were two people were shot by empty bullet, they were Ji'i and Suharjo. Panjaitan mentioned, Suharjo is the suspect of fresh fruit bunch (FFB) stealing and he is wanted.

Panjaitan thought, this is only about law enforcement. The shooting took place on Saturday at about 12 a.m. At the moment, 17 officers (security) of PT Arrtu Estate Kemuning headed to the area Block K/L which Suharjo claimed that it was his.

“When they arrived at the spot, 40 men led by Suharjo, a.k.a. Ujang Halus were harvesting FFB in the area,” Panjaitan said, as quoted from Kompas and continued that the police officers suggested them not to harvest in the company’s plantations and urged Suharjo to surrender. “He ignored us and we had to arrest him,” Panjaitan said.

When he was about to be taken to the police office persuasively, the family of Suharjo did not take it and other people had knife and chased the police officers. “Our members shot warning for three times. But the suspect did not ignore it and we have to shoot him at his back,” Panjaitan said.  (T2)
