According to information from the witness, the incident occured when Suarta had finished his work in his rice field on Wednesday evening and planned to go home.

Meanwhile, the Public Relation of the Klungkung Hospital, Gusti Putu Widiyasa confirmed that the doctor didn’t find any wounds from a physical assault on the victim’s body. “We couldn’t continue our investigation of his body as the victim’s family refused to conduct an autopsy.
