THE post-mortem examination of a man who died as a result of an alleged beating by nightclub bouncers has been completed.
Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the post-mortem examination was conducted a day after the 23-year-old died.
Ms Naisoro said the case was reported to the police on September 2 by the deceased's mother. She said the mother alleged her son was assaulted by bouncers of a Suva nightclub on August 25.
Ms Naisoro said the young man was admitted to the Colonial War Memorial Hospital's acute surgical ward on August 29 and later transferred to the Intensive Care Unit complaining of body pains.
She said investigations were continuing and police would look at all leads before commenting further.
This is the second assault allegedly involving nightclub bouncers within a month.
In the first, a witness had lodged a complaint of a man being beaten by three nightclub bouncers. However, the police had to drop their investigations because the man had denied the alleged assault was as severe as the witness had reported and he only suffered minor injuries.
The witness claimed the man was repeatedly hit as he lay on the ground bleeding and screaming for help. The witness also said the man's face was almost unrecognisable.
