Update 12pm: I’m not 101% sure this is the right thing to do, but I found the image for which Pak Bakaq was reportedly arrested on this post.

Read the content of the article. It’s hard not to suspect that there was some vengeful motive on the part of the cops, as Pak Bakaq was speaking out strongly against corruption in the force, and collusion between its top brass and known gangsters.
In fact, Pak Bakaq seemed to be quoting Raja Petra a lot - who has taken up this particular gauntlet of exposing police corruption many a time. Looks like since Raja Petra was already under considerable fire, they maybe wanted to unleash their frustrations against someone else.
