Pictures of a police officer who was bashed then fired from the force, have been sent to Coupfourpointfive, because the Fiji media were not allowed to report it.
Raj Shavendra Prasad was handcuffed, beaten, had liquor forced down his throat, and was charged for stealing a mobile phone - then terminated from the Fiji Police Force, in an apparent act of revenge.
The father of one, who was attached to the Nausori Police Station, was providing security at a birthday party in Baulevu, on Saturday May the 16th.
He finished up just before midnight and was ready to be dropped off by the host family when a van arrived. The seven occupants were known to Prasad and the family, so he accepted their offer to take him home.
On the way, the men handcuffed him and took him to a nearby house and beat him.
Sources say one of the seven men was ticketed by Prasad some weeks before, for driving under the influence of alcohol.
Sources also say that after the group beat Prasad, they called the Police Regional Traffic Officer, Inspector Timoci.
Inspector Timoci went to the Nausori police station in the early hours of Sunday ( May the 17th), requested a vehicle and reportedly told officers, “I must go or else they will kill him."
Inspector Timoci went in a police vehicle with the ID number F/140 - driven by one Alvin - to Baulevu where he picked Prasad up and took him back to the station.
Sources say at the station, Timoci hit Prasad before handing him over to Police Constables Sanjay and Sanjeet.
Prasad was then also punched by the two officers before he was locked up and charged with theft.
Later that Sunday morning, he was interrogated by Detective Sergeant Ami Chand in the presence of Crime Officer, Inspector Shyam.
He was questioned for five hours, despite being unable to walk or talk properly.
On Monday May the 18th, Prasad was taken to the Nausori Magistrates Court, where he had to be lifted into the dock by a police officer.
Seeing his condition, the magistrate ordered immediate medical attention and an investigation into the beating.
Prasad was taken by his family to CWM Hospital where doctors diagnosed him with injuries to his spine, bruising and a fracture to his skull.
He was in hospital for six days.
It's understood Prasad received a letter saying he was "terminated" from the police, the day he was seen by doctors.
Coupfourpointfive has the letter - see right of blog.
We understand the police have not investigated Prasad's beating.
