Despite the school visits some students are still intent on testing the long arm of the law, which is a serious concern and all efforts are now being put into bringing in those involved.
This is after an alleged incident where a student from a prominent Suva school was assaulted at his home by a group of students from another school.
These schools were in the limelight recently over incidents between students.
The latest incident happened on Tuesday night.
It is alleged that the group of students went to the home of the victim and asked to see him. They asked the student’s mother to see her son.
The mother allowed them to see him as they were students from the neighborhood.
However, she then saw the students beating up her son and she then reported the matter to Police.
Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said they have identified the student who led the attack.
“This is very unfortunate because this follows the Police Commissioner’s visitation of the schools on Tuesday. It shows that the students are disregarding all the directives given to them.”
“Do not cross the line’ was the message from the Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Ioane Naivalurua following this particular incident.
“What’s even more concerning is that the incident happened at the home of the victim at night.”
Officers have been instructed to speed up investigations and anyone found involved would be taken to task.
As investigations continue the Commissioner is once again reiterating that they will not tolerate the ongoing disregard of law.
“Students must not be engaging themselves in unscrupulous activity which will find them in the hands of the law,” he said.
“Police are serious about getting to the bottom of this issue and students must stop this unruly behaviour and concentrate on their studies.”
Ms Naisoro confirmed to the Fiji Sun that four students are in police custody regarding the assault on Tuesday night.
