The Special Detachment (Densus) 88 Anti-terror unit is still questioning a suspected terrorist , IM, who was arrested near Cakrabhuwana Airport in Cirebon, West Java on Monday.
“The investigator is given seven days to determine whether IM is actually a terrorist suspect or not. If he is, then we will prosecute further and if not we shall release him,” the Indonesian Police Headquarters’ spokesman Insp. Gen. Setyo Wasisto said in Jakarta, Tuesday.
Based on the police’s preliminary investigation, IM (32) comes from a village in Majalengka, West Java.
He was arrested following the Densus 88’s investigation in relation to securing President Joko Widodo’s visit to Cirebon.
The Densus 88 suspected IM’s movements and the fact that he was carrying a backpack in the airport area, which was later confiscated.
