THE stabbing of a 26-year-old female teacher in Ba could force the management to review the school's security arrangements.
The incident happened on Wednesday just after the last siren signalling the end of school.
The Fiji Muslim League, overseers of Kamil Muslim College, said discussions on security issues would be held and a formal statement would be issued.
In a statement released yesterday, police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said a 27-year-old male was in custody at the Ba Police Station for allegedly committing the offence.
"The suspect from Samabula wanted to see his girlfriend who is a teacher at a secondary school in Ba, however, she refused after she was allegedly threatened by the suspect," Ms Naisoro said.
"The suspect then waited until after 3.55pm when the last siren signalling the end of school was sounded and went into the school premises and allegedly stabbed the victim on her hand with a kitchen knife.
"The victim ran towards the office where she was allegedly hit with the kitchen knife again.
"The vice principal managed to seize the knife from the suspect and later conveyed the victim to the Ba Hospital.
"The suspect is still in custody while the victim has been discharged from hospital."
Meanwhile, the issue of security at schools was also highlighted during consultations hosted by the National Substance Abuse Advisory Committee in the Western Division this week.
Divisional education officer Western Lorima Voravora said he was not aware of the incident.
