Sun.Star Davao - - TOP STORIES - By Juliet C. Re­vita

AN­OTHER po­lice of­fi­cer was killed yes­ter­day morn­ing by al­leged mem­bers of the New Peo­ple’s Army (NPA).

Davao City Po­lice Of­fice (DCPO) spokesper­son Po­lice Se­nior In­spec­tor (PSI) Ma. Tere­sita Gas­pan iden­ti­fied the vic­tim as Po­lice Of­fi­cer (PO3) Wilfredo Bansag Garol Jr, 34, mar­ried and a res­i­dent of Rub­ber Vil­lage in Cali­nan, Davao City and cur­rently as­signed at Baguio Po­lice Sta­tion (PS11).

He was shot to death by uniden­ti­fied as­sailant yes­ter­day at around 7:45 a.m. in Purok 5, Si­tio Lu­man, Barangay New Va­len­cia, Tug­bok Dist, Davao City.

Garol sus­tained mul­ti­ple gun­shot wounds in dif­fer­ent parts of his body, re­sult­ing to his in­stan­ta­neous death.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice re­port, the vic­tim ac­com­pa­nied his wife, who is a teacher, to school and when he came back driv­ing his XRM black mo­tor­cy­cle, two uniden­ti­fied male per­sons hitched a ride on his driven mo­tor­cy­cle and upon ar­rival at the place he was shot sev­eral times. The sus­pects cart-

ed away his ser­vice firearms and mo­tor­cy­cle.

The sus­pects im­me­di­ately scam­pered to an un­known di­rec­tion.

Po­lice Re­gional Of­fice (PRO 11) re­gional di­rec­tor Po­lice Chief Su­per­in­ten­dent Manuel Gaer­lan con­demned an­other at­tack of their per­son­nel.

“I con­demn the sense­less and cow­ardly at­tack and killing of PO3 Wilfredo Garol by sus­pected LAGs. He was a good pub­lic ser­vant, po­lice of­fi­cer and lov­ing hus­band,” he said.

Gaer­lan claimed that the sus­pects are part of the liq­ui­da­tion team of the New Peo­ple’s Army (NPA) as­signed to as­sas­si­nate men in uni­form which is a clear man­i­fes­ta­tion of their to­tal dis­re­gard to hu­man rights. JCR (For full story visit www.sun­
