He says the girls were arrested last week after they reportedly drunk alcohol and fought on Mol-Mol road.

According to Mayol, the suspects were released because of congestion in the jail and absence of judge.

He indicated that there are other cases waiting for the judge.

The Court judge went for a leave since late last month.
