Police Probe Trio Death

Police are investigating an explosion which has now claimed the lives of three cousins.
Dead are Rohit Mudaliar, and his cousins Anand Rama and Ritesh Reddy.

Mr Rama, who died last Tuesday, was the director of New Marine and Auto Electrical Services, a Lautoka based-company.
The trio died of burns after a boat they were repairing in Vuda exploded.

Police said the boat was believed to be having electrical fault which could have caused the explosion.

The trio received serious burns and were rushed to the Lautoka Hospital where they were admitted before they died.
Gyan Mudaliar, 26, brother of the late Mr Rohit said, “I still can’t believe that my brother and cousins are gone. I had just spoken to Rohit before he left with my cousins for work in Vuda. We were having a discussion when our cousin came in and picked them,” he said.

“Right now my mum is not in the mood of talking and she seems like she wants to be alone. She is very sad with the loss,” he said.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said investigations were continuing.

“We are waiting for the fire report to determine the cause of the explosion,” Ms Naisoro said.
