Fiji’s Police Force has launched an investigation into “unruly behaviour” and“acts of hooliganism” by spectators which prompted Football House to call off the 2012 Inter District Championship final between Suva and Ba at Govind Park last night.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro told FijiLive that no one has been apprehended so far, and that they were adamant to push on with the investigation saying the incident was uncalled for.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan who was at the Ba pitch last night said the incident “created unnecessary panic and fear amongst those present”.

“There are proper avenues to address one’s grievances. We were seriously concerned about people’s safety and security,” he said.

Almost 70 officers had to try and contain the situation as there were reports that stones and bottles were being thrown into the ground.

“Our investigations will cover everything that happened last night because we will not tolerate any acts of hooliganism from a few unruly spectators who think they can get away with breaching the provisions of the law,” ACP Narayan said.

He also called for good sportsmanship and extended Fiji Police's appreciation to spectators who adhered to their advice to clear the ground last night.
