POLICE are investigating the death of a man during a card game known as “play pass” at Lengakiki in Honiara on Friday night last week.
Central Police Station supervising provincial police commander (PPC) Superintendent Flotilda Sabino said the incident happened between 11pm and 12am Friday night.
Ms Sabino said police have identified the alleged suspect and are currently investigating the matter.
She said two eye witness statements have already been obtained to form part of the police investigation.
However, she said the suspect is still at large.
“The suspect is still at large and police are appealing to those who may know where the suspect is to surrender to the police,” Superintendent Sabino said.
She offered her condolences to the relatives of the deceased for the loss of their loved one. The body of the deceased is at the National Referral Hospital morgue for post mortem.
“I appeal to both parties involved in this sad incident to refrain from taking the laws into your own hands. Allow police to deal with the matter,” PPC Sabino said.
