A DEE CEE'S Bus Services employee was remanded for a fortnight after he appeared in the Suva Magistrates Court charged with two counts of manslaughter.

Rabindar Singh, 65, is alleged to have driven the bus that hit a parked Nasese Bus which on impact collided with a parked Citiline Bus crushing Seruwaia Rokoseru, 46, and daughter Paulini Tubuna, 3, who were walking between the parked buses on Tuesday.

Mr Singh was charged yesterday morning and brought to court in the afternoon.

Bail application for Mr Singh was dismissed and the accused was told to make the bail application in the High Court.

Magistrate Sufia Hamza said manslaughter was an indictable offence and it should be heard in the High Court.

The accident where the mother and child were killed happened on Tuesday and their bodies were taken to Kadavu on Thursday evening. The case will be called again on May 16.
