People in Waqana Road, Nadi, are in shock after the body of a young boy was found with a rope tied to his neck last night.

A neighbour, who declined to give a name and lives next to where the boy was staying, said the boy could be be 12 years old.

“I have been staying here since 1997, I had never experienced such events and it has come as a shock to our community,” he said.

“Sometimes I see him playing with young boys in the area.”

The body was initially discovered by a 60-year-old woman, who, out of fear, reached out to a neighbour who then alerted the Police.

“I was really scared after seeing the body so I went ask for help from the house across the road,” she said.

“I am still in shock because the way in which I saw the body,” she said.

According to other residents in the area, the boy was living with a family in the same area for over a year.

The 60-year-old woman’s neighbour said when he discovered the body he noticed that a rope was tied to his neck.

“It’s really sad because he was a common face in this area and we would meet him every morning or afternoon on his way to the farm,” the man said.
