On the evening of April 27, 1916 the owner of a tandak (a sort of dancing theatre) killed three people and wounded about 30 others during a milling festival in Panji, Situbondo Regency, Dutch East Indies. The man had offered that for some money anyone could kiss one of the dancing girls, but when none of the visitors seemed to be interested and his purse remained empty, he became furious and first attacked the gamelan players, before turning against the spectators. He was eventually killed by the crowd.[1]
