TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Metro Jaya Police Chief Inspector General Fadli Imran on Monday said he will form a fact-finding team in relation to the case that grabbed public attention, which is the road accident involving a car driven by a retired police officer which eventually killed a student of the University of Indonesia (UI).
“As a police chief, I will take necessary steps and form a team to search the facts [behind the accident],” said Imran at the Metro Jaya Police headquarters on January 30.
The accident took place on Thursday evening, January 6, on a South Jakarta street. The student, Hasya Atallah Syahputra, did not survive the impact with the car driven by retired police officer Eko Setia Budi Wahono.
