ZAMAN KAISAR KWANG SIE: Prasasti yang ada di makam itu berbahasa Mandarin

Dugaan sementara, para pelaku itu akan membongkar makam itu untuk mengambil harta karun yang diduga ada di dalam makam. Indikasi itu terlihat dari penggalian dan pembongkaran cor-coran keliling bangunan makam. Bongkahan-bongkahan bekas bangunan makam itu banyak tergeletak di sekitar lokasi. Belum sampai menembus bangunan paling dalam, yang diduga berisi mayat dan harta karun, mereka sudah tertangkap polisi.  

Lokasi makam yang dibongkar itu, memang jauh dari jalan umum di tengah makam yang biasa dilewati masyarakat, berdekatan dengan Tempat Pembuangan Akhir (TPA) sampah. Sehingga saat melakukan aksinya, tidak mudah diketahui orang.

Berdasarkan tulisan mandarin di makam itu, dibangun pada masa China dipimpin kaisar Kwang Sie tahun ke-16 atau sekitar tahun 1901. Hanya saja, belum jelas nama orang yang dimakamkan di situ. Sedangkan ahli warisnya, sudah tidak diketahui.   

Kasatreskrim Polres Kediri Kota, AKP Verawaty Thaib S.Ik, saat dikonfirmasi membenarkan adanya pembongkaran makam di salah satu kompleks makam China bagian Selatan itu. Para pelakunya sudah ditangkap dan kini masih dalam pemeriksaan polisi. “Kita masih mendalami peran masing-masing,”ujar Verawaty. (mam)
