A Bloody Start to the New Year

Gang Violence Claims Two Lives at Kuta Nightspot on January 1, 2008.

(1/5/2008) A brutal attack by a local gang early on the morning of January 1, 2008 resulted in the death of two freelance security guards outside Dee Jay Music within the Kuta Square Complex. The attack, which marred an otherwise peaceful transition to 2008, is believed to have been carried out by between 10 and 20 assailants and occurred in the morning hours of the New Year.

I Wayan Suparta and I Ketut Mustiada, both 45, who were working as free lance security guards were attacked and killed after refusing admission to a New Year’s party to a group of young men.

Police have apprehended four of the suspected assailants and are conducting an intensive manhunt for another 15 men believed to have participated in the attack.
