A mother’s dream to one day see her eldest daughter graduate from nursing school has been dashed.

Thirty-four-year-old Saleshni Devi’s daughter, Year Five student Malvin Arpita Devi of Bhawani Dayal Primary School in Nakasi died after she was allegedly hit by a vehicle travelling towards Suva while crossing the road to board the bus in Nakasi.

The 11-year-old was rushed to Nausori Hospital where she died, two hours later.

“My daughter was a very nice and quiet girl. I never accepted it when she was taken away from me,” an emotional Mrs Devi said.

“She has never seen the world and had so much in life to discover.”

Mrs Devi said with the little money she had been earning, she had also been saving to ensure that her daughter achieved her dream of becoming a nurse.

However, that all come to a naught.

“She told me she wanted to become a nurse but all my plans now will be of no use.”

Mrs Devi has two children. Her youngest daughter, Artika Devi, 9 was also with them when Malvin was hit by the vehicle.

Still traumatised by what had happened, Artika said she missed her sister a lot.

“I miss her company now. We do everything together; we sleep together, we play together and we go and come back from school together,” Artika said.

“I feel so bad now that I have lost her because I will have no one else to play with.”
