Up the Down Staircase

Mother of Bali Chief of Police Injured in Escalator Malfunction at Kuta Square

(9/9/2011) Beritabali.com reports the Mother of Bali’s chief of police, Inspector General Totoy Herawan Indra, was injured on Monday, September 5, 2011, while using an escalator at the Matahari Square, Kuta, Bali.

The 60-year-old mother of Bali’s top cop suffered bruises and wounds to various parts of her body when she fell on a descending escalator at the mall. According to reports, she was shopping with a family group when the escalator suddenly stopped, causing the fall.

Reports indicate that the incident was due to the mall's management insistence that the escalator, still under repair, be returned to service before repairs were completed.

The relatively minor incident was reported to the police criminal division.

And while the Matahari Square’ s management has formally apologized to the family of General Totoy, the case remains an active criminal investigation by the Bali police.

An unnamed source told Beritabali.com, said five members of Matahari Squares management have been formally named as suspects.

The chief spokesman for the Bali Police, Hariadi, told the press he has yet to receive a report on the incident and was unable to comment.
