$3k bail for drug suspects

TWO men allegedly involved in the importation of illicit drugs from the US were released on cash bail of $3000 each by Justice Chaitanya Lakshman yesterday.

Accused Rakesh Prasad Charan and Shalendra Narayan were ordered to surrender their travel documents as both would be under strict curfew.

They were also ordered to provide two sureties each.

Justice Lakshman said their names were to be placed on the Immigration Department watch list and that their curfew hours were from 6pm to 6am.

He said since Mr Charan resided in Navuso, Nausori, he was to report to the Nausori Police Station every Friday.

He said for Mr Narayan, he was to report to the Nabua Police Station since he would reside at 3 Miles, Nabua.

"The two accused are not to change their location without the court's consent," Justice Lakshman said.

Aca Raiyawa, who represents both men, asked if they could appear on a later date rather than June 27.

Justice Lakshman said the case would now be called on July 11 and would be transferred to the High Court.

The illicit drugs — 226.3 grams of methamphetamine — was allegedly concealed in a "chocco pie" packet alleged to have been sent from the US.
