Gunmen led by a certain Ramji sprayed with gunfire a cell site tower and a generator of a telephone line at Sitio Marangan, Muti last Wednesday night.

DZT gathered that the perpetrators arrived at the target place at past 10 p.m. and without much ado opened fire on the tower and generator set.

The gunmen left the place before the police and military arrived at the scene.

Recovered at the scene were several spent shells of M14 and M16 rifles.

The tower bore 11 bullet holes.

It was learned that Ramji and his group are based in Barangay Calabasa. They were reportedly behind some atrocities in the area.

Authorities are looking into extortion as the motive behind the harassment.

Charges have been readied against Ramji and his group for the atrocity. – Dan Toribio Jr.
