Abduction case in court

Shalveen Chand
Thursday, June 12, 2014

A MAN charged with abduction and defilement told the police that the victim in question didn't want to return home, the High Court in Suva hear yesterday.

Charged is Ronald Chand, who allegedly abducted the 15-year-old girl on October 1, 2011, from Nasinu and took her to his home in Navua.

Mr Chand's caution interview was read out in court where he told the police how he met the girl and brought her to Navua.

He said he introduced the girl to his parents and said she would stay with them as the family was giving her a hard time.

He told the police of sexual engagements with the young girl in Navua and in Nadi. Police were told that Mr Chand was aware the girl was underage and therefore kept moving her around to avoid police.

The court heard that the girl ran away from a home belonging to Mr Chand's relative in Suva and returned home to her parents.

The defence also produced three witnesses.

The case will be called again today.
