SITG BATAS DETERMINES A SUSPECT TO THE KILLING OF A BRGY KAGAWAD IN ARAYAT

Special Investigation Task Group (SITG) Lauro Batas led by PSUPT  RICARDO S PANGAN JR, Deputy Provincial Director for Operations and Arayat MPS after rigorous investigation finally determined a suspect in the killing of Brgy. Kagawad Lauro “Larry” Batas that transpired last January 15, 2013 at Barangay Sto Niño, Tabuan, Arayat, Pampanga. This was made through the cooperation of the victim’s family.


After the burial of Kagawad Batas yesterday, his family decided to cooperate and sought out assistance from Arayat MPS in order to file a case that will lead to the arrest of the perpetrator of the incident. The family believed that a certain Narciso “Narcing” Parungao is the primary suspect in the murder since Kagawad Batas filed a case of Attempted Murder against Parungao sometime last year.

A case of Murder was filed against NARCISO “NARCING” PARUNGAO at the office of the Assistant State Prosecutor, National Prosecution Service, City of San Fernando, Pampanga docketed under NPS No. 111-12-INV-13A-00186.


The Pampanga PNP leadership commends the family in their cooperation and courage in helping the police in building a case against Parungao.


Further, PD PAGKALINAWAN reiterates that solving and preventing criminality entails partnership between the public and police.
