To convince people, M completed himself with the PDL NKRI uniform with the rank of Peltu, shoes, beret, bayonet, and an airsoft gun type.
However, the action was revealed when he was riding a motorcycle officer Babinsa Koramil 0201-145 / Medan Baru, Serka H Purba in the Jalan Luku area, not far from flyover Simpang Pos.
At that time, Purba was suspicious of the PDL NKRI uniform he was wearing.

From the hands of the perpetrators, the TNI confiscated KTP, SIM, and M’s family card as evidence.

Not only that, the actors also use their identity for project activities.
“The use of the identity of the TNI AD in all these documents is intended by the perpetrators to facilitate their actions inbacking project activities. Like packaging LPG tubes, and underground cable installation activities owned by PLN, “he said.
In this case, said Agus, it was not only TNI who was harmed. But also the Police through falsification of identity on the SIM and orders through falsification of identity on the Family Card (KK).
“We, the Army through Kodim 0201 / BS will file a lawsuit against the perpetrators who have now been submitted to Medan Polrestabes for further legal proceedings,” he said.
