The owner of the Multiplus Internet cafe on Jl. Siliwangi, Pamulang, South Tangerang, resumed business on Friday, three days after top terrorist suspect Dulmatin was killed in a shootout with the police on the premises.
Blood stains were still visible on the wall after the police opened the shop on Friday morning. "The police reopened the kiosk this morning and we are still cleaning the rooms from the mess," said Linda Diana, the Internet cafe manager.
"The smell of blood makes me squeamish and that's why I'm waiting outside."
She said she would ask a Muslim cleric to conduct a ritual to remove the bad aura resulting from Tuesday's deadly raid.
Although traumatized by the incident, all employees at the Internet cafe said they would resume working.
