POLICE have completed investigations into the alleged abduction of a 13-year-old boy in Saweni, Lautoka last weekend.
Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho confirmed this in a statement issued today saying the team of investigators conducted house to house enquiries, recorded statements of witnesses and had spent the past two days trying to verify claims that he was drugged and abducted by a group of men.
“Yesterday a decision was reached to speak to the victim again hoping that he may recall new information, as there were certain elements of the report that were not matching up to the findings of the enquiries conducted up until last night,” Brig-Gen Qiliho said.
“As is with all cases involving child victims’, investigators have to be sensitive and patient towards the needs of the victim, and will work closely with parents to ensure he or she is comfortable with giving information, which is why the investigation could not be rushed,” he said.
