Test result

POLICE are still waiting for the results of a blood test related to the alleged abduction claims of an 18-year-old Sigatoka woman last week. Sonam Swastika Lata claimed two men injected her with an unknown substance during the abduction attempt. Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said they would comment on the case once test results were received. "The police are investigating the claims and we will get to the bottom of it," he said.

Rape charge

A MAN appeared at the High Court in Suva yesterday charged with two counts of rape. The man appeared before High Court judge Justice Salesi Temo. The court heard the incident occurred on August 18 last year. Justice Temo remanded the accused in custody while the prosecution was directed to summarise the case. The matter will be called in court on March 15 for a pre-trial conference.

Remanded

A 41-year-old man who allegedly raped two children in Rotuma last month has been remanded in custody by the Suva Magistrates Court. The man appeared before Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili who transferred the case to the High Court. It's alleged the man raped a six-year-old and a four-year-old while they were playing inside their kitchen. The matter will be called again on March 1 next month.
