Attempts to search the waters near the Waidra settlement where the vehicle driven by Tasleem Ali veered off and plunged into the Rewa River were called off.

A statement from the the Fiji Police Force said: “Following discussions between the Commissioner of Police and the Commander Fiji Navy, a combined team of divers attempted to dive in search for the missing vehicle in the Rewa River.

“The Navy divers were brought in to reinforce the PSRU divers and the joint team made one attempt but had to call off the search efforts due to unfavourable and dangerous conditions.”

The current was still too strong and visibility poor to safely conduct any search efforts.

A decision to continue the search will be made tomorrow morning, the statement said.
