However, the prosecutor María del Rosario Lozada argued that in Caravelí there is no specialized criminalistics staffhomicide personnel, or experts to collect the bodies, because it is a criminal act.

In response to this negative stance, in the year 2020 Intigold Mining called the miners of Mina Kallpa or Atico Kallpa to extract the gold within their concessions, but this decision caused both organizations, both Callpa Renace and Atico Kallpa start a dispute and act with violence in order to evict.

However, the miners point out that the people who attacked with long-range weapons would have been contracted by the dealer Intigold Mining, although this fact will be clarified with the investigation of the Caravelí Criminal Prosecutor’s Office.

Are 6 Organized Crime prosecutors from Arequipa, 5 from Lima and 10 common prosecutors from Arequipto, who collaborate in the case because the June 12 is the deadline for that they requested before the Judiciary.
