A 23-year-old University student may miss out his exam tomorrow after he landed at Colonial War Memorial (CWM) Hospital following an accident over the weekend.

Mohammed Ali was riding a motorbike when a driver of a private vehicle allegedly entered the exit area of a service station along Princes Road in Sawani, Nausori causing a collision.

His mother, Shainaaz Ali of Nadali, Nausori, while looking after her son at the Acute Surgical Ward of CWM Hospital said she was still in a state of shock.

“My son was supposed to sit for his exam this Thursday at USP (University of the South Pacific) and I don’t think he would be able to because he can’t move his left arm and is suffering from internal injuries,” Mrs Ali said.

Motorbike owner Veer Singh who was accompanying the Mr Ali said he was upset by the way Police allegedly handled the situation at the scene and at the Nausori Police Station.

“We tried to give our statement at the station, but the officers refused to listen and said they had discussed with their seniors and they would charge both the victim and the driver of the private vehicle,” Mr Singh claims.

“The driver of the vehicle allegedly hid behind the service station after the accident while a crowd gathered around my friend and accused us for causing the accident.

“While all this was happening someone stole Ali’s jacket, wallet containing $500 and company tool kit worth of $500.”

He said a doctor who was following them attended to his friend who was lying unconscious on the road.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro has confirmed that no one has been charged yet.

“We are yet to record the victim’s statement because he is still admitted at the hospital,” Ms Naisoro said.

“Once this is done then we will bring in the driver for questioning.

“With regards to the allegations against Police officers, we suggest that the concerned individual to lodge a complaint and once this is done then we can investigate.”
