Police Commissioner Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho says the Internal Affairs Unit will be looking into allegations made against police conduct after an incident in Nepani yesterday.
Qiliho says at around 2pm, the Director of a Pharmacy in Nepani called the Valelevu Police Station and reported seeing four youths near the premises allegedly armed with pinch bars.
He further says upon arrival at the scene, the responding team found the place crowded with bystanders, whereby one of the suspects was handed over to Police, where it was noted that he had sustained injuries.
Qiliho adds a second suspect was also found with visible injuries and while in the process of being restrained, the suspect resisted arrest.
The Commissioner says as with all reports lodged against police conduct, if an officer(s) is found to have abused his/her authority they will be investigated, charged and produced like any other citizen.
