(5/3/2014)

A violent incident caused when a passenger ran amok of a domestic passenger vessel has left one dead and six injured.

NusaBali reports that the 969-passenger KM Awu operated by the State Shipping Line Pelni was sailing from Kupang in Eastern Indonesia to the port of Benoa in Bali on Monday, April 28, 2014, when the incident occurred.

Suffering from suspected stress in combination with alcohol consumption, a male passenger on the final leg of the voyage from Bima to Bali went berserk and began randomly stabbing fellow passengers on the ship.

The assailant was identified as Benediktus Leo (26) who stabbed and killed Agustinus Timo (28) – both of whom identified as hailing from Soe in East Nusa Tenggara. The dead man was a brother-in-law of Leo and died at the scene when he was stabbed in the abdomen.

Meanwhile the six people injured in the knife attacks were Yuliana Muluk (27) of Soe; Ejra Adol Pina Paratu (32 ) of Kupang; Maria Hurlatu (40) of Kupang; Feri Mandola (22) of Kupang; Mustajap, (52) of Kupang and Simon Umbu Kaleka (21) of Kupang.

Running from deck to deck of the ship and randomly attacking passengers, many of whom were sleeping on the deck, members of the crew assisted by passengers eventually managed to subdue Benediktus Leo after which he was beaten mercilessly until he was rendered unconscious.

Eyewitnesses say the ship sailed from Bima at around 5:00 pm and the attacks began approximately six hour later at around 10:50 pm when the ship was passing Dompu in West Nusa Tenggara.

Leo was travelling on deck 5 of the ship together with relations and friends, reportedly eating bread with Yuliana Muluk who was also injured in the attack. Reports say the man became suddenly agitated and began stabbing Yuliana Muluk who ran from the scene screaming for help.

The husband of Muluk, Agustinus Timo, was trying to save his wife from the vicious attacks when Leo stabbed him.

Benediktus Leo carried on his attack, blindly stabbing other passengers on deck 5 and 4 of the ship.

The attacks went on for nearly 20 minutes before crew and passengers subdued the man.

The extent of the beating inflicted on Leo by crew and passengers necessitated his hospitalization together with his victims in Bali when the ship landed the following afternoon at 3:00 pm.

All the injured passengers are being cared for at the Sanglah General Hospital in Denpasar with the cost of treatment covered by PT Pelni  - the ship’s operator. Pelni has also made arrangements for the return of the remains of the dead man to his home village in Eastern Indonesia.
