Shayal Devi

FOUR men believed to be involved in the alleged murder of 49-year-old carpenter Vasu Dewan Naidu earlier this week have been denied bail.

Mataiasi Ului, 30, Maikeli Loko, 31, Rakesh Kumar, 43 and Vinod Segran, 49, were charged with one count of murder each and appeared before Magistrate Mosese Naivalu at the Nadi Magistrates Court yesterday.

Mr Naivalu told the court that the four were denied bail because of revelations that their bail would interfere with state witnesses.

The proceedings have been transferred to the High Court in Lautoka and the next hearing will be on May 2 where the accused will be given the option of applying for bail.
