jatim.jpnn.com, MALANG – The student with the initials IA who was arrested by Densus 88 in Malang City on Monday (23/5) is suspected to be studying at a local university.
The 22-year-old youth has been named a suspect in a criminal act of terrorism because he has a role in the process of raising funds to help the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group in Indonesia.
The police will never reveal the full name of the perpetrator clearly. JPNN.com tries to trace the suspected terrorist who led to one of the students at Universitas Brawijaya (UB) Malang.
The head of RW 6 Dinoyo Village, Lowokwaru District, Malang City said that when he was a witness, Densus 88 searched the suspect’s belongings and found many strange objects.
“Many objects such as flags, weapons, bows, and Arabic books without a vowel. There are also laptops and flash drives,” Maki explained.
However, he admitted that he could see in the books and clothes with the UB Malang logo. However, he couldn’t be sure because he didn’t really remember.
“It’s not clear, it’s just like Universitas Brawijaya, yes. However, it’s not clear from a cursory look in the room, but what is certain is that it’s a student boarding house,” he said.
In JPNN.com’s search, the identity of the suspected terrorist IA is Ilham Alfarizi who is currently studying at the Department of International Relations, Faculty of Social and Political Sciences UB Malang.
