Suspect to remain in custody

Saturday, February 22, 2014

A MAN has been remanded to appear in the High Court next month.

Shammi Kapoor is charged with a count of murder, one of arson and another of damaging property.

Mr Kapoor appeared before magistrate Chaitanya Lakshman.

Mr Lakshman said the accused was charged with murder, arson and damaging property.

He said since murder was an indictable offence, it could only be heard by the High Court. He subsequently transferred the case.

Mr Kapoor was informed that bail applications should also be made to the High Court.

The court asked if Mr Kapoor had anything to say to the court.

The accused replied he would do so in due time.

It is alleged the accused set a house on fire in which a 17-year-old youth died.

The case will be called again on March 14.
