Naidu’s Bail Ruling To Be Given Today
Nasinu Magistrate Charles Ratakele will deliver his bail ruling today for Sanjay Naidu who is charged with rape.
Defence lawyer Jiten Reddy told the Court that the prosecution were given time to reply to the bail application for his client, but failed to do so.
Magistrate Ratakele said he would give his ruling in the absence of the State’s respond.
It is alleged that Naidu on November 12, at Nasinu had unlawful carnal knowledge with a 12-year-old girl.
The alleged offence took place while Naidu was on his last trip and he is alleged to have committed the offence along one of the bus stops along Princes Road.
The victim had boarded the bus from Nausori and had fallen asleep missing her stop.
