A TEAM of police officers from Labasa has been deployed to Taveuni to assist personnel there with investigations into an alleged murder last weekend.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the team would carry out interrogations and gather evidence relating to the case.

"Five suspects are currently in custody. One of them is arrested in connection to the alleged murder and four others are being interrogated in relation to an alleged assault case which had rendered another victim in a coma," he said.

"Both incidents happened after a brawl last Sunday morning rendering one man dead and the other fighting for his life in hospital.

"Dead is a 47-year-old man who was allegedly assaulted outside a famous nightspot on the island."

Meanwhile, Insp Sokomuri said the 52-year-old farmer who was crushed by his own tractor in Vuniyalayala outside Labasa over the weekend died as a result of multiple injuries he sustained from the accident.
