Densus 88 Kills Two Terror Suspects Allegedly Involved in Attack on Traffic Police | Jakarta Globe

Jakarta. Densus 88, the National Police's elite counterterrorism unit, has shot and killed two men believed to be responsible for an attack on two traffic police officers on the Cikampek-Palimanan Toll Road in Cirebon, West Java, last month.

A police source with knowledge of the matter, who requested anonymity, said officers arrested two other men also believed to have been involved in the attack.

Second Insp. Dodon and First Insp. Adj. Widi were shot while on patrol on Aug. 24.

Dodon later died in hospital, while Widi is currently still in critical condition.

The four men who allegedly carried out attack are believed to be members of the Cirebon chapter of Islamic State-affiliated terror group Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD).

The source said the two suspects were shot after resisting arrest during a raid on a house in Kalisalak village in Margasari subdistrict, Tegal, Central Java, at 09.30 a.m.

The South Jakarta District Court declared JAD a forbidden organization in July, over its involvement in high-profile terrorist attacks in Indonesia, including a series of suicide bombings in Surabaya, East Java, that killed more than 30 people.

The police have since arrested many of the group's members since then, including the first in command, Aman Abdurrahman, who is currently on death row after his conviction in June on separate terrorism charges.
