Brutality claims

A LABASA man has demanded an investigation into how a group of police personnel allegedly assaulted him in relation to a drug raid last week.

Rakesh Roshan Prasad claimed the personnel visited his camp in Naleba with police dogs last Thursday to conduct a search without a search warrant.

He said despite requesting the personnel give him reasons for the search, they continued to comb their compound, vegetable garden and farm.

He said the officers visited his camp twice that morning.

His wife, Reshma Kumari described the search as inappropriate and unethical.

Divisional police commander Northern SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau yesterday confirmed receiving a report from the couple.

He said the internal affairs unit in the North was investigating the matter.
