Witness recalls chase

A WITNESS in a murder trial told the High Court in Suva last week he made a mistake while identifying an accused during an identification parade.

Devendra Naiker is alleged to have killed Vishal Prasad in Nausori in 2011.

Prosecution witness Ratu Meli Draunimasi recalled the evening of December 20, 2011, saying he was having dinner with his family when they saw a car speeding along Irrigation Farm Rd.

He said this raised concerns because the road was not good and used by tractors mostly.

Ratu Meli, in his evidence, said the vehicle stopped near his neighbour's house. When he and his cousin went to check, they saw a man coming out of the vehicle and running away.

Ratu Meli told the court he chased the man and caught up with him but the man pleaded with him to let him go.
