JAKARTADAILY.ID – The Indonesian National Police Chief, General Listyo Sigit Prabowo, confirmed that he would conduct an audit of the standard operating procedures or SOPs applied by the police during the football match.
The statement was conveyed when he saw firsthand the condition of the Kanjuruhan Stadium after the crush that occurred after a football match between Arema FC versus Persebaya Surabaya.
While the crowd was initially rowdy at first, but it was still under control. It was allegedly until the police fired multiple shots of tear gas rounds that the crowd, suffocating, panicked and flooded onto the football field.

According to Sigit, the investigation team deployed to the location will explore all matters. The results of the investigation, he continued, would later be part of the investigation process carried out.
"Then we also received information on efforts to rescue Persebaya and Arema FC players and officials. We will explore everything and this will be part of a thorough investigation from the organizers, from the security side, and the parties involved," he explained.
