Hunt on for duo

POLICE are searching for two suspects believed to have been involved in a motor vehicle accident in Savusavu last weekend.

Police spokesperson Inspector Jokatama Qio said the two, who were drivers of the vehicles involved, were believed to have fled the accident scene.

“A report was received and investigation is ongoing and arrests are yet to be made,” he said.

Insp Qio said the investigating team had gathered information about the missing suspects.

He said when the police team arrived at the accident scene last weekend near Urata Village, the suspects and passengers were nowhere to be seen.

However, concerned residents of Savusavu who contacted this newspaper and preferred to remain anonymous said one of the suspects was a civil servant and the two had been known for their weekend driving spree.
