THE police have questioned the parents of a one-year-old toddler who drowned at Naila in Tailevu earlier this week.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said it was routine questioning.

She said police would decide later on whether to investigate the parents for negligence.

She said the post-mortem examination of the toddler was yet to be conducted. The little girl ventured to a fish pond 10 metres from her home and drowned after falling into it on Monday afternoon.

Ms Naisoro said the one-year-old girl was left at home with her five elder siblings.

She said the siblings were busy and no one took notice of the toddler going towards the pond.

The drowning toll stands at 20 compared to 19 for the same period last year.
