Information to 919 leads to arrests
The Fiji Police Force wishes to thank those who provided vital information through the Crime Stoppers 919 help line which resulted in the arrests of two persons on the Police Wanted List. It was published in the Fiji Sun. Ravindra Chand and Mukesh Raj Naidu were both handed bench warrants and were wanted for separate cases of obtaining financial advantage by deception. Chand was arrested in Suva last Thursday following a tip off received through the Crime Stoppers helpline and was arrested and escorted to the Sigatoka Police Station. He was produced in court to answer to charges of obtaining financial advantage by deception whereby he was alleged to have falsely operated as a legal clerk and obtained more than $2000 from a woman promising to conduct some legal work for her. He is currently in remand at the Natabua Corrections Centre. Meanwhile, Mukesh Raj Naidu’s arrest was possible following a tip off also received through the Crime Stoppers helpline whereby he was arrested in Nadi last Friday. “We are grateful for the support shown by members of the public and we are encouraging others to utilise the Crime Stoppers 919 help line to report criminal activities and provide information that could lead to the arrest of those wanted persons,” the Police release said.
