REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- National Police chief Muhammad Tito Karnavian has instructed his staff to act decisively against drug dealers. He ordered the police not hesitate to shoot dead drug dealers who tried to resist during arrest.

Tito said drug dealer is the heart of a network. If the heart stopped, the network is weakened.

"So, I ordered a firm act, if necessary shoot dead if they resist (to be arrested)," he said at National Police headquarters on Tuesday (March 27).

Drugs have become a serious problem in the country. Tito said the police paid a lot of attention to crack down the illicit drug business.
