“Nagising yata siya nung narinig niya yung mga kalampag ng paa sa bubong. Sa part namin, hinarangan kaagad namin yung mga bintana kasi nag-aanticipate kami na magpapaputok siya. Pero nung nai-umang namin yung baril sa loob, nakita na namin si Palparan ay natutukan na ng baril na kasama namin kaya hindi na siya nakagalaw,” said the agent who asked not to be named. Tempo

One of the NBI agents, who declined to be named, said the house was a former hideout of the so-called sparrow unit of the NPA. Among those who formerly stayed in the house was the Alex Boncayao Brigade group responsible for the death of United States Army Officer James Nicholas Rowe on April 21, 1989. “Being a general who hunted down militant members, alam niya na ito ay kuta dati ng mga NPA,” he said.
