11-YEAR-OLD ALLEGEDLY COMMITS SUICIDE
Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu yesterday requested parents and guardians to be open to the concerns of children after an 11-year-old boy allegedly committed suicide. “The victim allegedly took his own life yesterday at their home on the island of Kadavu after initial reports received that he was disallowed from accompanying his parents to Vunisea,” ACP Tudravu said. ACP Tudravu said the Fiji Police Force was deeply concerned with this particular case where a child was bold enough to allegedly commit such an act. “Again the Fiji Police does not want to point fingers at anyone in such situations however this renews our call for us as adults to be vigilant and alert to any changes in the behaviour of our children and be more attentive to their needs,” he said. He said what adults may find insignificant could mean a lot to them and by committing more time to children we would get a better understanding of their needs.
