The National Police’s counterterrorism squad Densus 88 shot dead three alleged terrorists on Jl. Kaliurang in Ngaglik district, Sleman regency, on Saturday.
“Today we arrested three and they are dead. They were fighting the police so we took a measured action,” Yogyakarta Police spokesperson Adj. Sr. Comr. Yulianto told the media on Saturday.
Yulianto said the alleged terrorists used a gun and sharp weapons to fight the police. Two police officers suffered stab wounds to their hands and hips.
The incident, which occurred on Saturday at 5:00 p.m, saw the police chase down four alleged terrorists who rode two motorcycles.
Two of them were shot in front of the Ngaglik district office, while the other two fled. Of the two, one allegedly hijacked a truck, injuring a passenger – the driver’s assistant – and forcing the driver to help him escape.
