The Head of Bangli Police Department, Kompol I Made Adi Suyawan, explained that the incident occurred when Made Yasa arrived at a house in Kayubihi Village, Bangli on Friday evening (5/2) to purchase ancient coins.

As Made Yasa was examining the coins, the grandson of the seller, Nengah Adi Swadana (35), entered the home screaming in a drunken state. Swadana became enraged seeing the victim inside his home without a facemask. 

“Why are you not wearing a facemask in my home? If my grandma gets infected with COVID-19, who will responsible for that?” Swadana shouted.

Suddenly, he began to attack Made Yasa by punching his chest and stomping on his feet. Following the incident, Made Yasa filed a report to Bangli Police Department seeking justice.

“The case is still under our investigation and we have also collected information from the suspect,” Suyawan concluded. The suspect is undergoing compulsory reporting at the Police Station while the case is being investigated.
