Public order officers mistakenly net two construction workers

Two construction workers had been mistakenly arrested by public order officers during an
operation against three-in-one jockeys.

Nurjali, 32, and Marjuki, 32, were waiting for a bus to Bogor in front of a gas station near Jl. Pakubuwono, South Jakarta , on Tuesday when the officers caught them, their uncle Sugito said Wednesday.

The officers brought them along with other people netted during the raid to Bina Insan Bangun Daya 01 social institution in Kedoya, West Jakarta .

Sugito, who was in the institution to pick up his nephews, said that he was afraid that the incident would make them traumatic.

Public order officers are often criticized for mistakenly arresting innocent people in the street.
