    Sr. Comm. Khrisna Murti, Chief of General Crime Division of the Metro Jaya Police, said that four out of the six witnesses are employees of a gas installation company.

    From their testimonies, Khrisna hoped to get an overview of the gas installation system in the factory. "So that we could have a description from the beginning of the blast," said Khrisna. The examination was held to find out whether the gas installation was intentionally damaged or just a mere negligence.

    The fire occurred on Friday, July 10, 2015, killing nine people in total. Four of the victims died while receiving treatment.
