THE village headman of Tagaqe, Nadroga, says his people were not involved in the recapture and alleged beating of robbery suspects, one of whom died at the Lautoka Hospital on Wednesday.

Semi Railau said the recapture took place at a distance from the village and he knew for sure that none of the villagers participated.

"No, we were not involved," Mr Railau insisted.

Police earlier claimed to have cornered three suspects, including the deceased, saying one of the suspects had sustained injuries when he ran into a nearby forest.

Vilikesa Soko, died at the Lautoka Hospital's ICU on Wednesday, and after sighting the post-mortem examination report yesterday, his family claims he was tortured.
