Jakarta – Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Rikwanto says the police have identified two men they are hunting for involvement in a recent series of shootings that targeted police officers in South Tangerang.
The alleged gunmen have been identified as Nurul Haq and Hendi Albar.
“Nurul was born in Jakarta in 1965, is a academy graduate and is married while Hendi is a father of three children,” Rikwanto said on Friday.
