127 People Killed After Riot at Football Match in Malang

2 October 2022 08:45 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Malang - A total of 127 people were reported to have died in the tragedy that occurred at the Kanjuruhan Stadium, Malang Regency, East Java, after the football match between Arema FC and Persebaya Surabaya.

East Java Police Chief Inspector General Nico Afinta at a press conference in Malang Regency, East Java, on Sunday, stated that of the 127 people who died, two of them were members of the National Police.

"In that incident, 127 people have died, two of whom are members of the National Police," said Nico.

Nico explained that as many as 34 people were reported to have died at Kanjuruhan Stadium, Malang Regency, while the rest died while receiving help at a number of local hospitals.

According to him, until now there are approximately 180 people who are still undergoing treatment at these hospitals.

In addition to the death toll, there were 13 vehicles that were damaged, 10 of which were Police vehicles.

"There are still 180 people who are still being treated. Of the 40,000 spectators, not all are anarchists. Only some, around 3,000 spectators, took to the field," he added.

In fact, said Nico, the football match at the Kanjuruhan Stadium went smoothly. However, after the game ended, a number of Arema FC supporters felt disappointed and some of them took to the field to look for players and officials.

The security officers then took preventive measures by making diversions so that the supporters did not go down to the field and chase players. In the process, officers finally fired tear gas.

According to him, the tear gas shooting was carried out because the disgruntled supporters of the team nicknamed Singo Edan (Fierce Lion) who took to the field had committed anarchic actions and endangered the safety of the players and officials.

"Because of the tear gas, they went out to the only exit point. Then there was a buildup (in the exit point) which causes the supporters suffer shortness of breath, lack of oxygen ," he said.

Responding to this incident, Malang Regent M. Sanusi stated that all medical expenses for the supporters who are currently undergoing treatment in a number of hospitals will be fully borne by the Malang Regency Government.

"We mobilized all ambulances for the evacuation process from Kanjuruhan Stadium. For those who are healthy and being treated, the costs will be borne by Malang Regency," said Sanusi.

Chaos occurred after the match between Arema FC and Persebaya Surabaya with a final score of 3-2 at the Kanjuruhan Stadium, Malang Regency, East Java, Saturday night, October 1, 2022. The defeat was the first for Arema FC in the last 23 years.
