Suku was an Indian coolie who killed seven people at a house in Nariara, a town in Rakiraki District, Fiji during the night from May 22 to May 23, 1930.[1][2]

During the absence of the other members of the household Suku was left to take care of a woman and her five children; they were later joined by another Indian's wife, with whom Suku had an affair, and her daughter. Around midnight Suku apparently got into an argument with his paramour, whereupon he grabbed an axe and killed her, her daughter, and the other woman by hitting them on the head. The five children tried to flee, but Suku pursued them with a knife and stabbed four of them to death, while the fifth, an infant, managed to escape. Afterwards he set fire to the house, burning it to the ground, and fled, but he was later arrested and charged with the murders.[3][4][5]

Suku was put on trial in Lautoka, where he was found guilty and sentenced to death in December the same year.[6][7][8][9]
