Update: 12:28PM INVESTIGATIONS into the death of the 17-year-old boy who allegedly jumped off the Qawa River Bridge in Labasa yesterday afternoon have started.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the victim, Abdul Zohab, was last known to have been driving a vehicle which was involved in an accident.

"The victim left the scene of the accident and ran 400 metres towards a bridge and jumped into the Qawa River after an alleged phone call to a relative," she said.

"His body was recovered by an operation team from Labasa Police Station and NFA and is now at the Labasa Hospital mortuary awaiting post mortem examination as investigations continue.

It was earlier reported that Abdul and his neighbour, Awaz Khan, were returning from a prayer session at the Nasekula Mosque when the car they were travelling in swerved and tumbled at the FSC bend.
