A 33-year-old woman is under police investigation for killing her baby boy after giving birth on Tuesday afternoon (5/04/16) at a village in Kadavu.

Police Spokesperson Inspector Josaia Weicavu said that on last week Thursday (7/04/16) the woman was rushed to the Vunisea Hospital after experiencing severe abdominal pain where it was discovered that she had given birth recently.

Inspector Weicavu said mothers should seek assistance from relevant authorities.

We wish to advise members of the public, especially single mothers to seek assistance from relatives, elderly members of the family, religious leaders, NGOs, Heath authorities, Police and some other government agencies if they have problems in their lives. Taking away the life of an innocent child is not the answer to your problem.

Inspector Weicavu said the post-mortem is expected to be conducted tomorrow.
