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.
