Two men to face court for allegedly assisting Dutt
January 2, 2018 10:10 pm
Two men will be produced at the Nadi Magistrates Court this afternoon for their alleged involvement in assisting escapee Dinesh Deshwar Dutt.
The two are a 50-year-old businessman and a 45-year-old priest both of whom are alleged to have been aiding Dutt during his escape.
Meanwhile, Dutt and two other men who were arrested by a joint task force team this morning continue to be questioned at the Lautoka police station.
Dutt escaped from the Nadi Magistrates court in December last year.
He had also escaped from the Suva High court in April 2017.
Dutt was convicted of two counts of aggravated robbery and was sentenced in absentia to 15 years imprisonment.
He was later arrested in May after a team of police officers foiled a robbery at a warehouse, located along the Nadi Back Road.
