Members of the Fiji Bikers’ Club led by the Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism, Lands and Mineral Resources Faiyaz Koya paid their final respects to the late Ashish Anil Jattan yesterday.

Bikers escorted the hearse to Dignified Crematorium in Nakasi where Krish, as he is commonly known, was cremated.

Mr Jattan died on August 27 following an accident on the road. He was heading towards Suva when his motorbike was involved in a collision with a taxi near a bus stop close to the Fiji National University Nasinu Campus in Valelevu.

During the funeral, Mr Koya along with other members of the club said their final goodbyes to their dearest friend.

“Krish was a dear friend of ours and it is unfortunate what happened but I assured the family the members of the bikers club and I am always present to assist them and look out for them.

“We pay our final respects and condolences to the family.

“He will be missed in the club.

“I have spoken to the Commissioner of Police to ensure the person behind his death is charged and have been informed that he will be charged soon.

“We want justice for our friend and if there is anything else we could do for Krish’s family, the members of the bikers club are always available,” Mr Koya said.

 

Driver questioned

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said the taxi driver was being questioned for his alleged involvement in the death of Mr Jattan.

The driver was questioned at the Valelevu Police Station yesterday.

“The suspect whist driving his vehicle is alleged to have suddenly changed lanes near the FNU bus stop to pick up a passenger when the victim who was riding a motorbike hit the back of the vehicle,” Ms Naisoro said.
