A SECONDARY school student in the North has been charged with abduction.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri confirmed the student was allegedly involved in a sexual activity with another 17-year-old student from the same school.

"It is believed the two had sex in the classroom and a teacher saw them," he said.

"The matter was reported to police by the school head and we carried out investigations.

"The boy has been charged and we are again reminding parents to play their roles well and talk to their children about the consequences of pre-marital sex."

Insp Sokomuri said the boy was taken in by police this week and questioned.

"He is 20 years of age and it is not clear though whether the two have been in a relationship.

"But the incident happened after a school day inside the classroom."
