Earlier at about 1:30 am a number of pilgrims who were following the tadarus (reciting) of the Al Quran encountered a middle-aged man who rode a motorcycle stopped in front of the small place of worship (mushalla).
Later, the man dropped the luggage of a plastic crib and told to leave the item because he would take the missed cell phone.
However, until Subuh prayer finished the motorcyclist did not return. Thus the pilgrims took the initiative to open the plastic box to find out what is inside.
“We suspect the contents are of the Eid package such as clothes or groceries, but after it was opened we saw the body and immediately reported to the police,” said Muslim, one of the witnesses.
