A 14-year-old student with initials Made RSA has been hospitalized after allegedly getting assaulted by police officers on Saturday (25/9).
According to the information from a source who decided to remain anonymous, the victim has been hospitalized to receive medical attention after allegedly getting assaulted by a police officer, causing him to suffer a bone fracture on his right leg which required surgery at Bros Hospital that is located in Renon, Denpasar. The victim explained that he was getting kicked and electrocuted by a non uniformed police officer when he was detained at the scene.
The incident occurred when Made and his girlfriend were on the way home with a motorbike after watching illegal street racing on Jalan ByPass Sanur, West Denpasar on Saturday early morning around 2:00am along with a group of people. Suddenly, the group was blocked by police officers right in front of The Hub Sanur, causing them to panic and attempt to flee with their motorbikes.
When Made attempted to turn around, a police officer kicked his motorbike, so he continued to flee by foot. But shortly after, he was captured by another officer and was allegedly assaulted on the spot, while his girlfriend was saved by a security guard on the other side of the road.
“The officer stepped on Made’s leg, tasered and punched his face.” said the source. After knowing Made was badly injured, his parents rushed him to the hospital and filed a report to the Bali Police Handling Profession regarding the incident. Meanwhile the Head of Public Relation Officer, Kombes Pol Syamsi confirmed that he had received the report from Made’s parents, but he was still unsure that the perpetrator was one of the police officers. “We’re still trying to investigate this case, as the victim was also unable to assure that the perpetrator was an active police officer.” Kombes Pol Syamsi concluded.
