Pekanbaru (Antara Bali) - A platoon of Mobile Brigade (Brimob) police officers is hunting a gang of armed robbers who shot a Brimob officer in Kampur district, Riau province, on Saturday.

He refused, however, to elaborate on how far the police officers had chased the gang members. "I am still in the field and cannot tell about any developments now. Police personnel are still combing the area," he said.
