Kuta after dark added to its unwanted reputation for crime and violence last week when an off-duty military officer shot and seriously wounded a security guard working at the Santa Fe Bar in Seminyak.
Wayan Surata was shot in the early hour of Monday, December 5, 2011, with shots allegedly fired by First Corporal Agus Muklas. Muklas reportedly fills an intelligence role with the Udayana Military command.
Muklas was known to frequent the Santa Fe Bar where he once worked as a part-time security guard, a position he eventually resigned due to illness.
He was apprehended by military police a few hours after the shooting which left the Balinese security guard in the intensive care unit of Bali’s Sanglah Hospital.
One source told the local press that Muklas shot the guard who he claims insulted him.
Military police continue to investigate the case.
