Men on the run

MEMBERS of the public are being warned that harbouring prisoners is a serious offence.

The warning from police comes as a nationwide search was launched yesterday for three remand prisoners who have been on the run for three days.

Police West spokeswoman Naina Ragigia said one of the prisoners was wanted for a case of murder, while the other two were wanted for cases relating to robbery with violence and impersonating a public officer.

"The escapees are Deshwar Kishore Dutt, Sailasa Mociu and Binesh Nand Pillay," Ms Ragigia said.

"Sailasa Mociu is in remand for a case of murder that took place in Naisaumua, Tailevu last year. He is also referred to as 'mongoose'.

"Deshwar Kishore Dutt is known for offences relating to robbery with violence, aggravated robbery, and theft."

She said Binesh Nand Pillay was in remand for an allegation of impersonating a Land Transport Authority officer.

"Members of the public are urged to be aware of such people and to contact the nearest police station or post if they have any information on the escapees."
