Body of murder victim found

JAKARTA: The cut and bruised body of a man was found near Sentiong Cemetery in Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta, on Sunday.

A passer-by, Abdul Rohim, 45, found the body of Lukman Nur, 26, lying near the cemetery.

The victim was a resident of Jl. Gang Masjid Al Falah in Pasar Minggu.

The victim's father, Rohbani Taryono, 60, alleged that Lukman had been murdered by Faisal, another local resident.

"Faisal, who was drunk, came to my kiosk yesterday and was staring at me. Maybe his visit to my kiosk is related to Lukman's death," said Rohbani. -- JP
