Police Liaise With School Heads On Kidnapping Claims

The Deputy Divisional Police Commander South has been liaising with the Head Teacher of Marist Brothers Primary School, who confirmed that most of the students reported to have been missing at the beginning of school yesterday morning have been accounted for by their parents.

Some students had not turned up for school yesterday while some turned up late after the message was sent out on the Parents and Teachers Association messaging platform.

Parents and guardians, however, have been urged to lodge a report at the nearest Police community post or station if their child is missing.

A team of investigators is looking into a report of an alleged kidnapping attempt lodged at the Valelevu Police Station yesterday morning whereby the victim claimed she managed to escape from a group of Asian men travelling in a white van in front of her school at Valelevu, Nasinu.

She claims there were two other students in the car and Police have yet to receive any official reports of missing primary school students as of last night.

The Fiji Police Force says rumours linking any of the missing 106 students to the kidnapping report is at this point unsubstantiated and it will continue to liaise with school heads to confirm if there are missing students.
