A 40-year-old Ba woman is in police custody accused of biting off half of a man’s tongue during a drinking party yesterday afternoon.
Police spokesperson Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said they believed a fight broke out during the party, when the alleged incident occurred.
It is unclear whether the accused was related to the victim.
The 31-year-old victim was spotted by a security officer walking away from the Ba Riverside with blood gushing from his mouth. They went back to retrieve the severed tongue before rushing to the hospital.
Police are still waiting to question the woman, as she was still intoxicated when this story was published. The victim is admitted to the Lautoka Hospital.
