THE medical report of a 17-year-old student who claims to have been assaulted by a Nadi teacher last week shows his injuries could have been inflicted by other means.

Police West spokeswoman Naina Raiyawa said they received a report yesterday that showed the student's injuries could have been caused by a fall.

"We have received the medical report of the student and it shows he was not assaulted," Ms Raiyawa said.

"The report has revealed to us that his injuries could have been a result of a fall and they were not consistent with an injury from an assault."
