“I cannot believe it, I just can’t.”
These were the uttered by Chanchal Lata, 34, when the Police informed her after midnight about the murder of her husband.
When Sun News arrived at the crime scene yesterday morning, the body of the deceased, Jai Chand Kumar, 38 of Naleba outside Labasa, had already been taken by the Police and the area surrounding a vehicle numbered DO061 had been cordoned off.
Neighbours’ at the scene said the alleged murder took place on Friday night after a grog session between the deceased and his two brothers. The brothers are now in Police custody.
Ms Lata said the husband had gone to meet his brother who was also his neighbour and another brother from Savusavu on Friday where they spent the day drinking grog.
“His asked me to dish out his food because he was hungry before he went to meet his brothers.”
She said he was a good and faithful husband and could not understand what could have gone wrong.
“I cannot tell whether he was murdered on the road or in the car, but when I was informed around 12.30am I could not believe what the Police were saying.”
“We have only two girls and one son and my husband was an employee at Waiqele Sawmill.”
Police Spokesman Atunaisa Sokomuri said at around 8pm the deceased had called the Labasa Police Station complaining that one of his two brothers was throwing stones at his vehicle.
“When Police arrived the complainant (deceased) was already dead.”
He said it was a domestic dispute and the two brothers are currently in custody and under investigation.
Police are once again appealing to the public not to resort to violence when resolving family disputes.
