TWO Labasa Hospital patients involved in am criminal case over the weekend allegedly engaged in a sexual-related activity.

Confirming this, police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri yesterday said they had started initial investigations into the case.

"The medical officials are also attending to the matter and so are our personnel in the North," Insp Sokomuri said.

"Right now, all we can say is that we have started investigations into a sex-related case involving the two patients and nothing else," he said.

"We are still trying to get all relevant facts relating to the matter.

"We are also waiting for the victim's medical report from health personnel there.

"We can't conclude that the incident was an alleged rape matter but all we can say is that it's a sex-related case.

"The patients are still admitted at the hospital as of now."

Insp Sokomuri said the incident happened over the weekend.

He said they received the report last Saturday and their personnel in the North attended to it.
