A group of students were attacked by several police officers along the Nine Mile road in Port Moresby, while on their way to school in a bus.
The incident happened after these police personnel, demanded payment from the bus driver, later followed with a car, and attacked them using physical force and other objects.
While the Royal Papua New Guinea Police Constabulary is trying its best to stop brutal attacks against the public, the campaign has fallen on deaf ears, of some officers.
This morning, a group of Della Salle Secondary School students including others, were attacked in a PMV bus, while on their way to school.
It all started after the driver of this bus 16, decided to ferry the students to school after they were stranded.
The driver claimed no traffic infringement notice was issued. He and the student sustained injuries and spoke of their ordeal.
Evedahana Primary School Head Teacher, Samuel Wala, has condemned the actions of these police officers, calling for their arrest.
The incident has raised concerns on the public’s safety and trust, and confidence in police, especially students.
Della Salle Board Chairman, Rumints Siki, who is also a police instructor at the Bomana Police Training College, said police were not trained, to conduct themselves in such an unprofessional manner.
The vehicle’s plate number was identified, and will be reported to the police for proper formal charges to be laid.
A court case will be filed, so that disciplinary measures are instilled on such officers who continue to violate innocent lives. emtv
