Sultan Azianzah, the late suspect of an attack against three policemen in Tangerang, is allegedly linked to the Islamic State-afilliated network Jamaah Ansharut Daulah Khilafah Nusantara (JADKN) lead by terrorist convict Aman Abdurrahman, a top police official said on Friday.

"He [Sultan] was part of the network cell of Aman Abdurrahman," National Police spokesman Insp. Gen. Boy Rafli Amar said as reported by Antara news agency.

From current investigations, police allege that the 22-year-old man had visited Aman in Nusakambangan prison island in Cilacap of Central Java with the leader of Anshorullah Islamic Boarding School, the late Fauzan Al-Anshori, in June of 2015.

Sultan joined Anshorullah boarding school in Ciasaga, Ciamis of West Java, from June to October 2015 where he studied religion, Boy said, adding that his family then decided to pick him up at the boarding school and that he later escaped from his parents' house.

Sultan allegedly brutally stabbed three policemen, namely Tangerang Police chief Corm. Efendi and his two subordinates First Insp. Haryadi and Chief. Brig. Sukardi, on Thursday morning at a police post in the Cikokol area of Tangerang.

He died on the way to Kramat Jati Police Hospital in East Jakarta on Thursday after losing blood from the gunshot wounds that hit his legs.

Boy said that Sultan's body had been buried at a cemetery in Tigaraksa, Tangerang.

Terrorist convict Aman is still serving time in Nusakambangan after being sentenced to nine years in prison in 2010 for being involved in military training in Aceh. He was allegedly involved in the Thamrin terror attack in Central Jakarta in January where eight people died, including four civilians and four terrorists suspected to be his followers. (rin)
