THE investigation into the alleged assault of a student during the round robin matches of the eastern zone rugby competition is still underway.
Fiji Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said a complaint was received by the Force of the alleged assault of a student who attends a school in Nausori.
“We’ve only had one complaint and that was the 19-year-old student of Nausori and he reported that he was assaulted by another student of a boarding school in Tailevu,” Naisoro said.
Eastern Secondary School rugby zone president Solomone Seru said they will conduct a meeting today regarding the issue.
“We will have a meeting today at 5pm, regarding the incident and make a decision on the matter,” Seru said.
The photo of the assaulted student wearing his school’s rugby jersey went viral on social media last weekend as he lay on a hospital bed.
