ONE of the three remand prisoners who escaped from Nadi Police Station over the weekend has been recaptured while the search for the remaining two is continuing.

West Police media liaison officer Naina Ragigia said Sailasa Mociu was recaptured in Nadi on Tuesday.

"At this stage, we are in the process of investigating where he was for the two days that he was on the run," Ms Ragigia said.

"We are also investigating if he had any help with his escape and whether anyone harboured him for two days."

Mrs Ragigia reminded members of the public should remember harbouring prisoners was a serious offence.

The remaining two prisoners are Deshwar Kishore Dutt, who is known for offences relating to robbery with violence, aggravated robbery, and theft and Binesh Nand Pillay, who was in remand for an allegation of impersonating a Land Transport Authority officer.

Mrs Ragigia urged members of the public to contact the nearest police station or post should they have any information regarding the prisoners.
