Three people had set themselves on fire in just less than a month.

A 27 year old woman died last Sunday after setting herself on fire after she was not happy with her partner drinking grog at his cousin’s place.

The incident took place at Nagado Village in Nadi.

The Fiji Police are concerned with the number of cases of alleged suicide where the victims have set themselves on fire.

On the 14th of this month, a 41 year old woman from Drauniivi village sustained 50% burns and she later passed away at the Lautoka Hospital.

Meanwhile on the 13th, a man in his late 60s died after setting himself alight in Togomasi in Nadi.

The suicide toll stands at 33 compared to 27 for the same period last year.

Fiji Police has adviced members of the public to talk and share their problems rather than resorting to drastic means that have unfortunately resulted in the loss of life.
