Five vehicle owners are seeking justice after their vehicles were allegedly broken into and vandalised during the Battle of the Giants tournament in Ba on Thursday night.

The alleged incidents took place while the vehicles were parked at the Fiji Football Association Academy ground during the BOG tournament.

Salesh Sami, 35, of Sabeto, Nadi was frustrated after his minibus window was shattered.

“We paid $2 for parking thinking our vehicles will be safe but this is the opposite,” Mr Sami said.

“Fiji Football should be answerable to this and we should be compensated.”

Aman Kumar, 29, of Lautoka complained that his vehicle tools and radio had disappeared.

“This is sad story and I believe this is not the first time this has happened, but where were the security officers when this happened,” he said.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro confirmed they had received reports of the vehicle break-ins.

“There was only one case of a car break-in at the BOG venue and Police are still investigating,” she said.

Fiji Football Association chief executive officer Bob Kumar said he was at Govind Park but was not aware of the alleged incidents.

“I did not hear of a car break-in, but that should not be the case if they are parked at the academy compound,” Mr Kumar said.

However he directed all queries to academy manager Rajendra Kant Sharma.

 

Cash robbery

Meanwhile Police are investigating an incident where a local businessman was alleged to have been robbed of cash at San Bruno Hotel in Nadi on Thursday evening.

The victim sustained injury during the incident.

Ms Naisoro said: “We can confirm the report but cannot confirm the exact amount of cash and items stolen at this point.”

She said the matter was also under investigation.
