An investigation is currently underway into an alleged abduction case involving a nine-year-old child.
The Fiji Police Force confirms that the investigation is being headed by the Divisional Crime Officer Eastern.
The victim is admitted at the Wainibokasi Hospital in Tailevu after sustaining minor scratches from the alleged incident which occurred this morning.
It’s alleged the victim was abducted from outside his home early this morning by three men and forced into a waiting van where two others were waiting.
His hands and feet were allegedly tied inside the van however, he managed to escape from the five by jumping out of the moving van a few meters away from his home.
Police say a thorough investigation will be conducted to verify the claims of abduction and people must not speculate or create unnecessary panic on unsubstantiated information that is yet to be verified by investigators.
