A stop order is still in place for the two people Police say are suspects in the Nausori Highland case where the five bodies of a Legalega family were discovered on Monday morning.

This was again confirmed last night by Po­lice spokesperson Ana Naisoro.

She was responding to comments from a family member of the suspects who spoke to the Fiji Sun on their behalf.

“Our investigating team still have their documents and the stop order remains,” Ms Naisoro said.

The family member, who wished to re­main anonymous, said they (suspects) were expecting the Police Forensics team to re­turn their travelling documents last even­ing. The family member also said both the suspects did not want to speak to the media, but directed all queries to their lawyer.

He said the suspects’ reputation had been tarnished by media reports.

The bodies of Nirmal Kumar, 63, and Usha Kumar, 54, their daughter Nileshni Kumar, 34, and granddaughters, Sana, 11, and Sa­marah, 8, were found at a site close to where Police are conducting their investigations.

Ms Naisoro said investigations were still underway.

“The crime scene investigators team were again at the scene in Nausori Highlands and with the help of villagers they descend­ed the cliff and searched nearby areas,” she said.
