Suman Ali says she still vividly remembers how she was thrown out of her car by a group of men who then drove away into the night eight days ago.

The same car was later used in a robbery at a  , Nadi. A cash register containing cash and a safe were stolen.

The six men, who are thought to be responsible, are still at large and Mrs Ali’s car is still missing.

Mrs Ali said yesterday: “I am grateful that I am alive and well, the car is just a materialistic stuff and I was really caught off guard when the incident occurred.”

She said she was on her way back home on Tuesday night when she was confronted by a group of men at Bayview Heights near Nabua.

“I was coming back from an event at the temple and my car was parked in a very open space. There were a lot of people at the temple.”

She said it was dark where the car was parked.

“I got in my car and then suddenly there was a knock and I thought it was just a joke and then suddenly I was thrown out of the car,” she said.

“I screamed but they were so fast, they quickly drove away.” She said it happened so fast.

Mrs Ali said she was thankful that nobody was hurt in the process. She declined to be photographed.

Police believe that the group of men who were involved in the Nadi robbery are high risk criminals.

Police chief of Intelligence Senior Superintendent Luke Navela said: “The six men who are involved are working in groups and we need to strategise our investigation as we are dealing with high risk criminals,” Senior Superintendent Navela said.

“The vehicle used in the robbery was stolen from a woman at Bayview Heights, Nabua last Tuesday.”

Senior Superintendent Luke Navela said the men stole the safe and cash register and fled in the stolen Red Hyundai Tucson registration FN 711.

The original registration of the Red Hyundai is HJ 537.

Police are pleading with the public for information about the six men. Call the nearest Police station or Crime Stoppers on 919.
