A MAN who was alleged to have indecently assaulted seven primary school girls on Vanua Levu has been remanded in police custody for another 14 days for his own safety.

Acting divisional police commander northern SSP Fulori Rainibogi yesterday said they had completed investigations into the matter.

"Right now, we are keeping the suspect in custody for another 14 days for his own safety," she said.

"After the 14 days, he will be produced in court."

It was earlier reported the man, about 50 years old, allegedly lured girls aged between nine and 14 years with cash.

It is understood the incident happened in a village.

SSP Rainibogi earlier said they received seven reports from different girls from the same village.

She has called on parents to be extra careful about the activities their children were engaged in.
