    He suspected the arrest was relative to a case regarding a scam, although he could not yet confirm the identities of the suspects. 

    Prasetyo said the arrest was a joint operation between the prosecutor's office and the KPK. He also dismissed rumors that the sting operation took place at the West Jakarta Prosecutor's Office, of which his son, Bayu Adinugroho, is the chief.
