Investigation in progress

DETAILS of an investigation carried out by a private investigator into a case involving Lautoka City Council special administrator Praveen Bala has yet to be obtained by his lawyers.

While addressing Magistrate Peni Dalituicama in the Lautoka Magistrates Court yesterday, defence lawyer Shalen Krishna said they had not decided on a trial date because their private detective had not completed investigations into the case.

"As to how far his investigations have gone, I have still yet to get an update from our investigator," Mr Krishna said.

He said investigations were extensive because the case was delicate.

He said the investigator was not allowed to interfere with State inquiries and witnesses.

He said he could not provide a date on when the investigations would be completed.

Mr Krishna said the reason they earlier agreed to an October 20 plea date was because of the extensive investigations.

He added he had yet to read through Mr Bala's medical report from the Lautoka Hospital.

The case has been adjourned to September 28 when the special administrator is expected to make his plea.

Mr Bala is charged with one count of dangerous driving occasioning death, in a car accident where a 40-year-old-man died near Teidamu, Lautoka, last year.
