The wife of the vic­tim, Kel­era Gar­i­toga, 28, has con­firmed this.

“Sai’s mother is cur­rently in the US; once she is we will make ar­range­ments for the fu­neral to take place,” she said. Mr Vu­nakece be­came the lat- est road fa­tal­ity af­ter be­com­ing vic­tim to a hit and run case at Vuci South Road on Satur­day.

“We are still con­tin­u­ing with our in­ves­ti­ga­tion since the driver was al­legedly un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol, driv­ing the taxi with­out head­lights on and was over­speed­ing,” he said. ASHNA KU­MAR Edited by Manasa Kalouniv­iti
