JAKARTA, May 3 -- An e-hailing delivery rider’s son died after eating a poisoned iftar (breaking of fast) meal sent by a woman who has a grudge against her former lover.
Nani Aprilliani, 25, sent chicken satay laced with cyanide to her former lover named “Tomy” through the Gojek rider, named “Bandiman”.
Director of General Criminal Investigation for police department in Bantul, Yogyakarta, Burkan Rudi Satria, was quoted by local media as saying that Tomy’s wife refused to accept the food delivery as she doesn’t know the sender. Bandiman then took it home for his son and his wife.
Bandiman’s son, Naba Faiz Prasetya, 10, vomited right after consuming the satay and was immediately taken to the hospital but died during treatment.
The incident took place on April 25 and police discovered that the female suspect, hailing from Majalengka in West Java, was arrested last Friday, said Burkan.
He added that based on police investigation, the motive for the incident was revenge as Tomy had married somene else.
Nani bought the chicken satay and and put the poison on it before asking Bandiman, who was resting at Jalan Gayam, Yogyakarta, to send it to Tomy’s house in Bantul in Yogyakarta.
The suspect, who did not use any app for the purpose and whose identity was not revealed, would be facing the death penalty upon conviction.
