Police Nab Six Who Planned to Fire Rockets From Batam to Singapore

“G.R.D planned attacks in several locations, including the police headquarters, on Bahrun Naim’s instructions,” National Police spokesman Brig. Gen. Agus Rianto said. “G.R.D and Bahrun Naim also planned to fire rockets from Batam to Marina Bay in Singapore.”

Police have named Bahrun as the mastermind of the attack that killed eight people in Jakarta in January. Prior to the attack, the police in Bekasi, West Java, arrested several alleged terrorists from a group led by one of Bahrun’s men, identified as Abu Mus’af.

“G.R.D accommodated two Uighurs, one of whom was deported and another arrested alongside Abu Mus’af in Bekasi,” Agus said.

Nur Rohman, a member of the group in Bekasi, escaped the police raid and in July launched a suicide bomb attack that injured a police officer in Solo, Central Java.

Katibah Gonggong Rebus is believed to have facilitated many Indonesian militants on their way to join the Islamic State group in Syria.
