"Some time ago when we were about to curb this asset, the intruders blew up the issue of sara by stating that PT KAI would carry out the eviction of the mosque, this was an attempt to clash religious communities with the company," he said.
Meanwhile, PT KAI's Attorney, Andi Sukandi stressed that the assets of PT KAI were controlled without rights and then converted into a means of worship without permission and the knowledge of PT KAI and the intruders used sara issues to involve the masses to help defend assets that were not his.

Andi said that the 1,686 square meter assets belonged to PT KAI based on the basis of rights in the form of AJB No. 232 since 1954. The assets were used as official houses for seven (7) PJKA employees / officials with SPR No.46 / Akom / 75 dated June 24, 1975.
"In 2007, these assets were put in order and residents were asked to vacate them. At that time, an agreement was made with seven (7) residents and they had received a rope of love money and the handover was carried out with PT KAI. However, the children and grandchildren of one of the residents on behalf of Hadiwinarso donated the country's land to the current residents on behalf of Nugraha Day, "he explained. (Parno)
