POLICE continue to investigate the alleged drowning of a 17-year-old boy whose body was discovered in the Qawa River in Labasa on Friday afternoon.

Spokeswoman Ana Naisoro yesterday 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 (Abdul) body was recovered by an operation team from Labasa Police Station and fire officers.

"His body is now at the Labasa Hospital mortuary awaiting post-mortem examination as investigations continue."

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