Suara Denpasar – “Bloody Pengrupukan”, a horrendous case that occurred in March 2023 or to be precise on Pengrupukan night, the day before Nyepi Day.
Where I Putu Eka Astina alias Tu Pekak (40) became the victim of a beating and stabbing and finally died while being treated in hospital.
Two defendants who allegedly beat and stabbed Tu Pekak were eventually sentenced to six years in prison. The two are I Gede Santiana Putra alias De Wine (31) and I Dewa Gede Raka Subawa alias Bembem (24).
“To defendant Gede Santiana Putra Alias Dede Wine and defendant I Dewa Gede Raka Subawa Alias Bembem each for 6 years minus the period of arrest and detention they have served, and the defendants remain in detention,” explained Public Prosecutor (JPU) Ni Putu Widyaningsih at the trial at the Denpasar District Court (PN), last September.
In his letter of indictment, Public Prosecutor Widyaningsih stated that the two defendants had been legally and convincingly proven guilty of committing a criminal act openly and with joint force using violence against people or property, if the violence resulted in death.
For their actions, both of them were deemed to have violated Article 170 Paragraph (2) 3 of the Criminal Code. This is the first alternative indictment presented by the prosecutor. ***
