A boy, 16, (name withheld) from Tallinding has reportedly been arrested for allegedly killing a friend on Saturday. Sources said the two, together with three other friends, went to a dance at Six Junction in Bundung.

The culprit is said to have initially fled arrest but eventually emerged from hiding and is presently in police custody helping them with their investigations.
