BANDA ACEH, Indonesia – Police have launched an investigation after a car belonging to an East Aceh legislator, Fadil Muhammad, was found with three bullet holes early Sunday (July 14th), local media reported.
No one was in the car at the time when the shots were fired. It was parked in front of the Aceh Party district headquarters in Simpang Ulin, according to The Jakarta Globe. Witnesses said they had heard noises but attributed them to Ramadan fireworks.
"This is an act of terror," the website sripoku.com quoted Fadil as saying. He expressed concern that someone may have been seeking to target him directly.
Fadil is deputy chairman of Commission A of the district legislative council in Aceh.
