The South Kuta police department has detained five people who deliberately went outside during the Day of Silence celebration.
The Head of the South Kuta Police Department, Kompol I Ketut Sugiarta Yoga, confirmed that a local resident in Ungasan and four ship workers in Benoa were detained during the Day of Silence on Thursday (3/3).
“Indeed, I received information regarding the incident. I hope it will not happen during the next Day of Silence celebration in Bali,” Kompol Yoga said.
According to the investigation by the Bali police department and local village officials, authorities spotted four ship workers roaming around the public road with motorbikes. Upon detainment, they were punished with push-ups while being informed about the regulations involving the Day of Silence celebration in Bali.
Authorities also received a report about a man who allegedly had a mental disorder on Thursday evening in the Ungasan area.
Authorities immediately responded to the incident, and the man was immediately taken back to his family. It was suggested that they give the man proper medication.
