Residents Targeted By Thieves During Curfew Hours

Residents along the Suva-Nausori corridor have been targeted by thieves and robbers during the dark of the curfew hours.

Two weeks ago in Khalsa Road, two masked intruders entered a home during curfew hours, and robbed a family.

A week later in Lami, a family was held hostage while they were brutally assaulted and later robbed of their belongings.

A week ago, Anushil Kumar of Nasole woke up at around 2am to find two men wearing hoodies lurking in his compound.

In Laucala Beach, Bal Krishna had to deal with drunk girls who had come to finish off their party in an open space next to his home.

In all these cases, the members of the public have requested for greater Police presence in terms of patrols in the area.

Police Chief Operations Officer Assistant Commissioner of Police Abdul Khan said the Police does not deny that these offences had happened during curfew hours.

He said Police had detected almost all the cases of burglary and robbery and people had been arrested to face the law.

He said the Police had revamped their curfew operations and were always ready to help the public.

Mr Khan said there was a need for a community and Police synergy to help reduce such crimes.
