The Culianan police station has forwarded to the City Prosecutor’s Office a case of violation of the Anti-Carnapping Act of 1972 against two brothers who killed a habal-habal driver and took his motorcycle in Mulu-Muluan, Mercedes recently.

PO2 Elmer Toribio, case investigator, identified the suspects as Jack Ahari and Mumin Ahari, both residents of Sitio Baktus, Talabaan.

Toribio disclosed that a witness, whose identity has been withheld, positively identified the two Aharis as the passengers of Joel Francisco before he was killed in Mulu-Muluan in the evening of May 2.

Toribio added that the witness was at the intersection of Mercedes and Talabaan road when he saw Francisco driving his Honda XRM motorcycle with the two Aharis as passengers, heading for the interior of Mulu-Muluan coming from Mercedes proper.

Few minutes later, the witness spotted again the two Aharis riding tandem on Toribio’s motorcycle at high speed going for Talabaan coming from Mulu-Muluan.

Moments later, the witness learned that Francisco was shot and killed in the interior of Mulu-Muluan and his motorcycle was taken by the killers.

The witness drove his motorcycle and rushed to the crime scene and positively identified Francisco whom he saw earlier ferrying the two Aharis to the said place.

Toribio added that they tried to invite the suspects to the police station to answer some query but the mother told them that her two sons were not anymore residing in their house.

Francisco fetched the two Aharis along Lobregat highway in Mercedes where they told him to bring them to Mulu-Muluan. — Dan Toribio Jr.
