FIJI Police seek Interpol's help to arrest criminals of Indian origin

Tuesday, November 21, 2006

Fiji police have sought the assistance of Interpol to track down three suspects wanted for questioning in the murder of Nadi businessman Kamlesh Nandha in September this year.

Fiji police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) director Superintendent Josaia Rasiga confirmed that Interpol's intervention had been sought in the case.

SP Rasiga said the three were being sought for questioning but declined to comment when asked if all three were businessmen.

He also said police had an indication of where to look overseas.

"Local immigration records indicate that the three are in India and that's why weve sought Interpol's assistance," SP Rasiga said, while confirming that the local leg of investigations was ongoing.

Earlier reports said one of the three gave Singapore authorities the slip while in transit there and boarded a plane for Mumbai, India.

Nandha, a production manager for local firm Raniga Jewellers, was stabbed outside the gates of his Nadi home while returning from a yaqona drinking session.

One man has already been arrested, charged and tried for his murder.
