Escapees in custody

Shayal Devi

TWO prisoners who escaped while in lock-up at the Nadi Police Station a month ago have been recaptured.

West Police media liaison officer Naina Ragigia said Deshwar Kishore Dutt and Dinesh Chand Pillay were both apprehended yesterday.

"Police arrested Dinesh in Nausori and after his arrest, we were able to track Deshwar in Navua," Mrs Ragigia said.

She said both had yet to be questioned.

"We want to thank members of the public as we have managed to recapture them with their help."

Meanwhile, one man was charged in relation to the robbery that occurred at a foreign exchange outlet in Nadi Town last week.

Mrs Ragigia said the man was produced in court on Monday afternoon.

"He has been charged with one count of aggravated robbery.

"We are still waiting for the medical report of one of three suspects arrested last Saturday before we can charge him and another accomplice."
