THE investigation into the alleged illegal extraction of gravel from Nasoata in Savusavu is progressing.

This was revealed by North Divisional Crime Officer ASP Salaseini Vakatuturagani during the Cakaudrove Provincial Council meeting.

Responding to queries from landowners, ASP Vakatuturagani assured them the police have yet to finish taking statements from witnesses. He added the police would move to Viti Levu to question two suspects.
