Investigation on arsons in Timika continues
The police would not stop the investigation on the November-3 arsons and lootings following the death of Adjunct Commissioner Yance Ikomouw in Timika, capital of Mimika district, Papua province, the local police chief has said.
"We will continue the investigation as it is a criminal case," Papua provincial police chief Inspector General Max Donald Aert told newsmen here Monday.
Yance died after fighting with chief of Mimika Baru subdistrict police Adjunct Commissioner Julius Yawan on Saturday at about 4 a.m. local time. But it was believed that Yance died of heart attack not due to gunshot wounds or blows during the fight.
