THE Fiji Police Force has reminded spectators not to take the law into their own hands during sporting events.

This was after angry spectators tried to enter the field during the Inter District Championship final between hosts Ba and Suva.

Suva had scored what seemed to be the winning goal and Ba players protested the goal and tried to get violent with match officials and Suva players.

Yesterday, Assistant Commissioner of Police chief of staff Ravi Narayan confirmed to Times Sport they have received three complaints regarding Sunday night's incident.

He said they were still investigating the matter.

"We have received three complaints, no arrests have been made yet and we are still investigating," ACP Narayan said.

"We are reminding the public not to take the law into their hands and the police force will not tolerate any hooliganism at sporting events," he said.

He said the incident was a learning lesson and should be avoided in the future.

"In games, one team wins and one loses and so spectators should come to watch games and be ready to accept either a win or a loss."
