TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The joint force from the National Narcotics Agency, Provincial Narcotics Offices, and Police Forces have seized seven drug dealers. The authorities said those seven drug dealers were part of an international network in Malaysia and Indonesia.

Head of the National Narcotics Agency, Commissioner General Heru Winarko, stated in Medan on Monday that one of the suspects, identified by the initials MT, was shot dead as he tried to resist the bust and attempted to escape.

He further stated that the agency personnel also took evidences in the form of 44.7 kilograms of drugs and 58 thousand ecstasy pills.

"The drug dealers that we took into custody were identified by their initials as KA (27), AS (19), RP (26), MK (31), ZL (40), RS (26), and DS (27), while the other one who was shot dead was MT (33)," he revealed.

He remarked that the bust was held in six locations in North Sumatra and Aceh, during which they also took a number of vehicles into custody.

Earlier, National Police chief Muhammad Tito Karnavian has instructed his staff to act decisively against drug dealers. He ordered the police not hesitate to shoot dead drug dealers who tried to resist during arrest.

Tito said drug dealer is the heart of a network. If the heart stopped, the network is weakened.

"So, I ordered a firm act, if necessary shoot dead if they resist (to be arrested)," he said at National Police headquarters on Tuesday (March 27).
