The police become the target (again) of terrorist acts. Karanganyar Police Deputy Chief Busroni and his driver, Bripda Hanif Ariyono, were victims of the attack by the sickle gunman.
Busroni was attacked while going down Mount Lawu through Cemoro Kandang, Tawangmangu District, Karanganyar Regency, Central Java, Sunday morning, June 2. Apparently, the deputy police chief had indeed been targeted for attack.
At that time the Karanganyar District Police officer along with a group of volunteers would carry out a mountain trail to do a cleaning to Lawu’s hiking trail.
When all the participants were preparing at the entrance of the hiking trail, suddenly a man chased after Busroni who was sitting near the Muslim prayer room (mushala). The perpetrator also attacked his driver and the volunteer.

Karanganyar Police Chief, AKBP Leganek Mawardi, explained that the bag carried by the perpetrator contained a change of clothes, pants, toiletries, cutlery, and a small book.
“In the bag, there are clothes, pants, toiletries, toiletries we have secured. And some of the booklets were already secured,” Leganek said at the Karanganyar Police Headquarters as quoted by Okezone, Monday, June 22.
“I was sitting in a chair, moving things from a carrier bag to a small bag. Suddenly someone attacked,” Busroni told reporters on Sunday.
Busroni also said that he could fend off the perpetrator’s attacks. At that time he brought a climbing stick.
He only suffered injuries in the hands that are used to fend off. The driver was injured in the neck and back. While volunteers also suffered minor injuries.
The perpetrator was finally paralyzed by the police with the help of volunteers. The perpetrator was immediately shot by the police at the scene.
