An 18-year-old boy was allegedly assaulted by another student of the same school last week.

The students are said to be from a school in Suva. Yesterday, the victim’s mother took him to the emergency ward in the Colonial War Memorial Hospital saying that the injuries were very serious and he could not bear the pain.

His mother did not wish to speak to the media because she did not want to jeopardise this assault case which was currently under investigation by the Police.

Meanwhile, Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said the investigation was continuing although the victim’s father wanted to withdraw the case considering the implications on the suspect’s education.

“Since it’s an assault case the investigation process will have to be completed and the file sent to the Divisional Crime Officer for then ext course of actions,” she said.
