Semarang (ANTARA) - If you are on a quiet and dark street and suddenly a "pocong" appears, of course you will be extremely surprised. "Pocong-pocong" like that was played by five junior high school students in Mijen District, Semarang, to frighten passers-by.
Cash residents who found the "pocong" reacted, and also reported to the police. Long story short, the five junior high school students in Mijen District were not prosecuted by the police following their prank or fad action which scared residents by wearing pocong "costumes".

The students were arrested following reports from the public who were uneasy with the actions of the students. The police arrested junior high school students who frightened residents by jokingly using pocong "costumes" in the early hours of Sunday (10/11).
Head of the Mijen Polsek, Police Commissioner Budi Abadi, in Semarang, Monday, said the five students were only coached as a result of their nosy actions. "We summoned the five students, questioned what their motives were," he said.
The five students with the initials MF, RK, TG, FN and MH came accompanied by their parents and school. When they were arrested, TG and RK had fled but the police continued to chase them until they were finally arrested at their respective homes. MF was immediately arrested because he was still wearing a pocong costume.

According to him, the five students were not prosecuted criminally.
The five, he said, were only asked to make a statement containing an apology and would not repeat their actions.
Even though the law has not been processed, the police are still investigating the motive behind it. "The five admitted, but shifted responsibility over who had the idea," he said.
By wearing pocong "costumes" they mean they are just making fun and fun to scare people, but instead they are caught by the police.
