Description

The victim was killed in San Sebastian at two o’clock in the morning of 27 March 1983. Together with his colleague, Corporal Juan Manuel Martínez Aguiriano, he was trying to defuse a bomb which had been planted by ETA next to Portobello, a shop in the Gros district of San Sebastian. The Municipal Police had received an anonymous tip-off, giving the location of the device. A bomb disposal squad from the National Police was notified and having cordoned off the area, they were about to defuse the bomb when it exploded. Juan Manuel was seriously wounded in the blast while Aniano was killed instantly. The terrorists appear to have deliberately booby-trapped the device, as their real purpose was to kill the police bomb disposal experts.
