Jayapura, Jubi – A Koya TImur resident, Kuba (32 years old), was wounded after he was hit by a bullet and an arrow by an unknown assailant at Skopro Village, Arso Timur Sub-district, Keerom Regency, Papua on Wednesday (9/9/2015). A source said the victim suffered injuries to the head. “Just asked the Papua Police. The victim is currently taken to the Keerom Hospital for medical treatment,” said the source via a text message on Wednesday (9/9/2015). The Papua Police Spokesperson Senior Police Commissionaire Patrige Renwarin confirmed Jubi about the incident. “The incident was occurred at 09:00 Papua time when the victim was cutting a tree on that scene. He got shot in the back head through the left eye. He also got bad injury on the left hand through the stomach. He is currently under the intensive treatment at Keerom Hospital. His current condition is still not updated,” Renwarin said on Wednesday (9/9/2015). According to him, due to the lack of eyewitness, until now the police could not make a conclusion about the motive behind the shooting. The police officers are now doing the investigation. “The victim is not able to be questioned now. However, it’s too soon to rely this with politic. This is purely a case of crime. There’s no connection with the political situation, whether in Keerom or in Papua,” he said. “If the perpetrator has been caught, we will knew who’s behind his action and what’s his motif. Do not say it’s a red zone. I don’t think it could be said like that. So it’s too early to say this area as red zone,” he said. (Arjuna Pademme/rom)
