Jayapura, Papua (ANTARA News) - Five police officers who were shot by unidentified gunmen in Indawa Village, Lanny Jaya District of West Papua on Monday (July 28) are currently undergoing intensive medical treatment at the National Polices Hospital in Jayapura.

The Jayapura National Police Hospitals spokesperson Senior Police Commissary Dr Raymond confirmed the news of the five police officers being shot, one of whom is in a critical condition and is being treated at the National Polices Hospital in Jayapura.

"We are still observing and monitoring the current condition of First Brig. (Briptu) Helsky Bonyadone, as the bullet is lodged in his organ," Raymond stated here on Wednesday.

Four police officers who were on duty at the Lanny Jaya police station were also hospitalized but are expected to be released from the hospital in a day or two and undergo outpatient treatment.
