Kumar to undergo psychiatric evaluation

Terminated school teacher Kishore Kumar will undergo psychiatric evaluation for the next three days at the St Giles Hospital.

This will be done at the discretion of the hospital’s superintendent.

The order was given by Acting Chief Magistrate Josaia Waqaivolavola at the Magistrates Court in Suva, today.

The State has been ordered to present Kumar back in Court, next week for the determination of the psych report.

Resident Magistrate Seini Puamau had sent Kumar’s files to the Acting Chief Magistrate for orders for a psychiatrist’s evaluation.

Kumar is charged with allegedly making false porn video claims on his Facebook page, Kishore Kumar Publications against Assistant Minister for Foreign Affairs Lenora Qereqeretabua in 2020.

The matter has been adjourned to 12 April before Waqaivolavola while Kumar’s trial will continue on the 20th of May before Magistrate Puamau.
