Police have classified the death of a woman, whose body was found near her car in Teidamu, Lautoka last week, as murder.
Police media officer Wame Bautolu confirmed this after a post-mortem examination was conducted on Saleshni Devi, 34.
Ms Devi’s unresponsive body was found on a cliff.
It was earlier alleged that she died as a result of her vehicle veering off the cliff at Teidamu outside Lautoka City.
In a separate incident, police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro also confirmed that an investigation was underway following the discovery of a man’s body at Navakai in Nadi on Sunday night.
She said police had responded to the report of a fight where the discovery was made.
“The victim is in his late 20s,” Ms Naisoro said.
“A post mortem will be conducted to ascertain the cause of death.”
Police investigations continue in both cases.
