Plea for information


Police are calling on anyone with information about a student who was allegedly sold a spiked bottle of juice to contact them.

They issued a public notice in the wake of a message being circulated on social media platforms warning parents to be vigilant after a student was allegedly sold a bottle of juice that may have been spiked.

Police are calling on anyone who has information to come forward or call the Crime Stoppers line 919.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said while there was a mention of the matter being reported to the police, no report had been lodged at the Lami, Totogo, Raiwaqa, Samabula, Valelevu, Nasinu or Nausori police stations.

“We urge anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers or their nearest police station,” she said.

Suva psychotherapist Selina Kuruleca said parents and students needed to be more vigilant.

She urged parents to mix their children’s drinks from home if need be.

She said the drink that was allegedly spiked should be tested and analysed.

“It would be necessary to see how many more people were impacted and that person who is selling must be taken to task.

“There are supposedly CCTV cameras all over the city, it’ll be great to have the footage and find the seller.”
