"The case has been processed. This morning, (the police) also received evidence based on the testimonies of witnesses and the result of case reconstruction. Moreover, this morning (the perpetrator) has been named a suspect," Imran remarked during a press conference at the Jakarta Metropolitan Police Headquarters on Thursday.
