SOME people were being questioned by police last night in connection to the brutal killing of a Chinese man over the Easter weekend.
However, police declined to reveal any further details on investigations into the stabbing incident.
Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said some people were taken in by police on Tuesday night and yesterday for questioning.
"The only thing I can say is that some people were taken in and questioned and they are still being questioned," Ms Naisoro said.
"We don't want to reveal too much on investigations because we don't want to hamper the investigations," she said.
Ms Naisoro declined to comment when asked if one of those being questioned by police was arrested at the Nadi International Airport while trying to flee the country.
The police spokeswoman said no details would be released on the killing until charges were laid against those involved.
The deceased man's family declined to comment when approached by this newspaper yesterday.
A family member of the murder victim's wife said: "The family is traumatised after the incident.
"She (victim's wife) doesn't want to talk to reporters and I hope you understand the situation."
The man, who is believed to be the owner of a club located along Suva's Victoria Parade, was stabbed several times in the back about 2:30am last Sunday.
He was getting into his vehicle near a service station on Victoria Parade when a vehicle pulled up with three men inside.
Police earlier said one of the men got off the vehicle and stabbed the victim several times on the back before fleeing in the same vehicle.
The vehicle was later found abandoned in Kinoya outside Suva late on Sunday night.
