THE police have yet to charge a man for allegedly raping a woman whose baby was discovered in bushes at Tabia in Macuata last week.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the police were continuing their investigations and that the allegations were vague.

"The three adults who were charged this week in connection with the case were produced in court earlier this week and they have been remanded in custody," she said.

"The two women will be remanded at the Suva Women's Prison while the man will be remanded at the Vaturekuka Prison in Labasa."

Earlier on, the three suspects, including the baby's mother, were each charged for a count of attempted murder.
