A 21-year-old man who allegedly defiled a 14-year-old girl has been further remanded in custody.

Kiniviliame  Turagalailai appeared before Magistrate Shageeth Somaratne at the Nausori Magistrates Court today.

The nude pictures of the school girl had gone viral on social media.

Mr Turagalailai is charged with one count of abduction and one count of defilement.

Police Prosecutor Corporal Shailend Prasad objected to bail and said the Cyber Crime Unit was still continuing its investigation on how the nude pictures were posted online.

He will reappear in court on Monday.
