Fiji Police has launched an investigation into a school fight in Suva this afternoon that landed a student in hospital.
The fight between students of Suva Grammar School and Marist Brothers High is believed to have taken place at Sukuna Park.
Police spokesperson Atunaisa Sokomuri told FijiLive that the students were taken to the Totogo Police Station where they were met by the principals and vice principals of the two schools.
“A student had to be taken to the hospital needing medical attention for injuries he sustained in the fight,” Sokomuri said.
“So we called in the principals and vice principals of the two schools and we have decided its time we put our foot down and ensure this incident is no repeated in future.
“We are taking a hardened approach to clamp down on these. Only last month we visited a number of schools including the two schools creating awareness on this very issue about street brawls. By the look of things, our advise are falling on deaf ears. We plan to investigate the matter further and implement measures to act as deterrent for students who may want to do the same in future.”
Sokomuri has also appealed to parents to take heed and be alert and keep a close watch on their children’s activities after school and take note of their whereabouts.
