POLICE are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a young woman on Saturday night at Naikabula in Lautoka.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said one person was in custody and a post-mortem examination had been conducted on the victim.

"At this stage, all I can confirm is that a young woman died and a male person is in custody," he said.

Narayan Pillay, the owner of the home where the young girl was found dead, claimed the victim — only known as Asena — was allegedly having an affair with a married man.

"She came from somewhere in Tailevu and was living here for about one month," he said.

"They had been seeing each other for about the same time and because he was married, he would come and go from the flat she was renting from me," he said.

Mr Pillay added the wife of the man had come to the house on Saturday morning and words were exchanged between the two.

"The man's wife came and asked that he return home and there was some shouting and screaming going on."
